That is incredible! Superb image.

It really emphasies just how many stars are out there, just look at it virtually every pixel (on my laptop) is a star! Amazing!

All the new people who are joining the forum and who want to get into imaging should look at this image to see how good things can get but equally, appreciate all the hard work it takes to produce.

Yes, I've just stopped dead in my tracks having seen this... I was compiling my shopping list.. but calculating investment & life expectancy I'm wondering if I have really left it too late.. :)

You really have excelled yourself this time Olly and worth every ounce of effort you have put into it. It's going to take a lot to top this one :)

Absolutely seemless, gorgeous and of course truly awesome.

I am just sitting here shaking my head in awe. it's amazing.

top work Olly. to think this is all packed into a relatively small area of sky too (relatively speaking). if only we had ccd eyes.

I'm still not wanting to be an imager though :)

Absolutely love this and looks fine on my 27" Mac screen. Particularly love the detail in /barnard's loop and the witch's head. Superb!

Well Ollie, what a job that must have been, working with such a huge mosaic! I am surprised you survived!! :)

Largest area I have seen, I hope you had a VERY large G & T after!!!!!!! You earned it

Nice one Olly!

Hi Olly,

I downloaded it. Stretch the **** out of it. Dave.

I was chastised for using asterisks instead of expletives! Following that, I re-read the rules and found that you can not put links to ones own website, yet lots of people do. I have followed several of these links and have found links to astronomy tours, suppliers etc.

Olly that it a fantastic image. Being solely a visual astronomers its great to cross reference astro photos with details in star atlases. In particular the extent of Barnard's loop and the Witch Head Nebula.

Thanks for sharing Olly.

Wow! You pointed me here from a thread in the beginner's section and I must say that is inspirational - if also very intimidating...

Congrats on finishing it Olly! Looked promising from the beginnings, and the finished result certainly doesn't disappoint; a real stunner!

I like that you haven't boosted the wide ha regions too much, it keeps the brighter nebula in contrast giving it a more natural feel.

You are quite right. Won't do it again. It was my way of saying that no matter what I did I couldn't find the seams.

Dave.
