Very nice image and what a resolution! - thank you for sharing the link Marc

Out of curiosity I measured the 4K version with PI and it estimated star's eccentricity at 0.466. Perhaps we should stop worrying about slightly elongated stars in our amateur set-ups

It doesn't even look the same at this resolution and detail, so used to seeing this in amateur setups without SO MANY STARS!

Thanks for the link Marc.

Very impressive image....but...gee the colour is weird, and there is a lot of bloat around the brighter stars...almost like spherical aberration ...yet details look super sharp....

The cloud structures are however awesome...
