This is quite a large object, as you have found.... with typical hindsight, a 2nd frame below it would have made a glorious mosaic.

Your stars ar pin-sharp right up to the edge... Nice!

Great work in bringking out the nebula... soooper.

ah, I see you're all back now :)

This is a super shot, and phil says the stars are very tight. Nicely framed as well.

Given the relatively short exposure I'd say it has been processed a touch on the contrasty side,
