Amazing detail Rick. It's fascinating how much Ha is in there. Colouring is bold for sure.

The Astrobin version has been tweaked a little to tone down the Ha (slightly) improve the core and also to emphasise the very, very dim star stream at upper left. The previous version was also at greater than 100% resolution which made any warts even more obvious The new version is at the native image scale.

Perhaps the Ha is a bit bright but in the widefield image it doesn't seem to be so much.

As usual the stars are perfect - man you are so good at that.
Thanks, Greg! I think the new version is a little more nuanced but hopefully the stars are much the same

Thanks, Marc. The scope does a great job!

Great data and great stars and so vibrant....I reckon it is good to see a pushed out there interpretation.
Thanks, Tim. Hopefully the new version is still a bit aggressive.

Thanks, Paul. The navigation isn't always obvious but there is a full res version there. Direct link is https://www.astrobin.com/full/351189/0/?real=&mod=

Thanks, Al. Hope the new version is more to your liking.

Sometimes less is best...this one's a little too neon for me.

That said...super data. Nice.

Hey Rick,

I'm torn here - it's dazzling, yes - iridescent, yes - pops, yes - too much? I dunno, maybe? or not?
That said, a darn fine image!, well done

PS: I used to be decisive, but now I'm not so sure

The new version seems better Rick. Love that spray of stars to the top left. Fabulous.

Greg.

Yeah, it's still a bit bright Peter. Jay GaBany made the point at the last AAIC that we're bombarded with saturated colours these days and that's what people expect. Probably need to do at least two versions. One for imagers and one for everybody else

Thanks, Andy. You can have some time to make up your mind. I'm not sure either.

Awesome data and nicely processed, Rick. I much prefer the one currently on Astrobin.

My 2c... looks like you went heavy with HDRMT, which tends to give a very flat look which I find a bit artificial looking.

Thanks, Lee, and you're right. HDRMT and LHE are best in small doses but occasionally I forget
