It really doesn't get much better than this!

Lots of good signal, perfect contrast, wonderful tight colorful stars - great.

I'd recommend a little less noise reduction (just a LITTLE less) and a little more brightness in the shadows. IMHO this will turn this image from an A+ to an A++.

Very pleasing result!

Just to add to the praise, lovely detail.

Please can you make sure to post a smaller version as a preview here on SGL? That way we can include a link to any images and a thumbnail that we think are worth mentioning as part of our Picture of the Week threads.

Thanks for sharing with us :D
