Hi,

After struggling several nights with malfunctioning devices, in freezing -20 centigrade wind, I managed to collect enough data to finalize my Melotte 15 project. (I did lost skin from my finger tips, while fixing various problems out there...)

There are much large images in my blog and a panoramic, two frame, mosaic of this area as well. Be sure to click the images to see them full screen!

An experimental starless image, original images can be seen in my blog.

Another beautiful image. My favorite is the panoramic image from your web page. That belongs on a wall. Congrats to your successful run of clear skies.

Great work J-P!

That's terrific! Really looks like the background of a Rembrandt or great Impressionist.
