Nice image Jérémy, very naturally processed. My first CCD should be arriving tomorrow which also uses the KAF 8300, seems to be a good performer.

Oh, and i think you mean deep 'field' :) your English is excellent though, much better than my French!

Yes i am Jérémy, in the Dordogne. Moved here from Scotland a few years ago. Lovely dark skies and many many more cloudless nights!
