Lovely. It is hard to judge the sheer size of Omega Cen in such an image. I once spotted it through 15x70 bins from Sydney, and only 47 Tucanae seen from South Africa a year or so earlier could beat it. Awesome object

Michael, size and distance in astronomy has always blown my mind. It's impossible to visualise just how immense it all is.
