    Since I already use several different software codes, I will be missing out on that one. I wonder if there is a standalone product?

    Anyway, I never thought that the S40 was within reach; you proved that it is, so I might just give it a try. I went through the M110 in roughly 10 months, so I think this one might take a lot longer since I'm distracted with many other things. (This month has been lost in space so to speak, though tonight is looking like a winner...)

    It really does do a great job and I've gotten more compliments on it than on my images!

    So when are you starting the S40?

    I'm off tomorrow and it is looking promising for tonight.
    I have a couple of targets I could shoot for to continue this quest. The Spindle galaxy being one...
    I need another project to keep me interested... Perhaps I'll add to the Heart/Soul Mosaic with some more color....

    I say go for it!!
