The transparency was kind of crappy last night, so open clusters seemed like a good idea.

Hmmm, more like a squatting monk studying a scripture in front of an Arizona cactus.

Hi, Kathy,

 

a nice result! waytogo.gif

 

I think, the background is a little bit too much blue; could be corrected (neutralized) , for example, with fitswork with one click.

 

cheers

Andreas

I noticed the same thing.  Nice image, but kinda a blue.  Easy to fix.
