Hey Guys and Gals, here is a mosaic I started last month and put her together. It was a challenge with all the clouds to remove the gradients and such and blend it together. I hope you guys enjoy!!

Thanks for looking,

Jimmy

That's the most hi-res rendition of the wall that I've ever seen. It's really fun to scroll around and explore it. There's a lot going on there. Beautifully processed. Shouldn't you be at work today?

APOD APOD! Dsnope I think Jimmy was at work in Scotland when it was midnight here in CA. I think I saw him on ESPN about 3:30 AM when I got off work.

Excellent work Jimmy, what contrast and detail!

Jimmy,

The dust toward the top of the frame gives it a truly three dimensional appearance. Awesome stuff. In fact, I think it's time you gave up astrophotography and spend your time on something that's really difficult - like golf.

Your transition from OSC to LRGB has appeared to be effortless. Can't wait to see more.

Mike

Without reading the comments, APOD definitely comes to mind. Many more should see this stunning image.
