Nice image !
Can you post one showing M16's size in the full frame itself ?
I am curious to know how it appears on it. Or what was your Focal Length?

The focal length is 2800mm. I cropped about 20% from the full frame to eliminate some vignetting that the flats didn't take care of.

How long was each sub? Beautiful image.
