Excellent image Mark and far nicer than the one on APOD.

Now I've sorted out the colour on my monitors the image is stunning. I am envious of your ability to pull out the dark dust lanes into an almost 3D representation. You are so lucky you can do the subs for each pane of the mosaic in just a few minutes! With an ordinary DSLR or old style CCD it would have taken hours. If that astroporn doesn't make the centrefold picture of the month I'll eat my dewshield (the little paper one on my 35mm lens...)

Totally agree Dunc... that is a simply stunning image - I seriously think it could elevate itself to APOD

Thanks so much for your comments, Mike, Duncan, John and Carole.

I'm very happy with this image (not often I say that!) and rank it in the top 3 of my all time favourite images.

Mark

Curious what the other two are.... IFN, Pleiades rank highly for me but then again your horshead & surrounding area was amazing - you've got too many good images to choose from...
