    Wow, just wow. That is a beautiful image.

    Tonight is the seventh night in a row with clouds, rain, and drizzle here in Western Mass. Pfffft. I assume you are dealing with the same there in Mystic?

    You may want to touch up the "ring effect" on the stars within the nebula. A minor detail, of course. I often get that problem in StarTools if I am too aggressive with DECON.
