Thanks M & T. There is a tad more detail in the original 4k .tif file...but at 32Mb is not web friendly at all.

Ta Simon, the seeing was good, probably sub 2 arc second, but not excellent.
Iíve only seen really good seeing at my location just before a fog rolls in and fills the valley across from my observatory. As for poorer seeing subs...I donít do any narrow field imaging when the seeing is rubbish....they are times better spent with a camera lens or good glass of Shiraz.

Congratulation again^ Peter - an astounding image.

It leads me to wonder what is possible for mere mortals and to ask , if I'm not being too nosey : How suburban is suburban in terms of the darkness (radiance data) of your local sky for this image? What sort of radiance reading do you get from the light pollution map below ? ....https://www.lightpollutionmap.info/#...ers=B0TFFFFFFF

PS: Mine is terrible : 41 at Home Melbourne Bayside, but much better at 3.9 and 2.1 at two lovely spots within 15minutes.

Radiance data in my neck of the woods looks to be about 15-20 ish. But frankly I don't think that radiance map is accurate. Just a 20 minute walk north put one into 35 or so....big shift for a short walk.

Peter I rarely comment here but I must say I consider your image perhaps the best I have ever seen. I show it to many folk who say the same.

Alex. Too Kind.

P.S.
I would have thought this pre-Christmas post might have passed its use-by date by now...I find posts that get dredged up from the depths (including my own) are a bit like a crass dinner guest who doesn't know when to leave ...hence I won't respond further on this one. If anyone has a question just PM yours truly. Thanks again guys.

Might make a nice screen saver
Fantastic result .....probably one of the most impressive I have seen
