Very nice indeed :) Could I suggest making the background a little bit darker?

Nice to have you on board Roberto. That is a beautiful image also. The color in the nebulae is saturated but I think it works, and the color of the stars are lovely. I also like the spikes, I think they can add to an image.

Also yes, I understand the brightness now, printers/printing presses can add as much as 30% in darkness, depending on type of print and media.

Thanks for sharing.

Also, Tuscan food every day and great astronomy, you're a lucky man :)
