    Description

    Rev A - Full redo, reframed, with luminance and tried rgb stars but not that successful thus far will look at that tomorrow.
    Rev B - Few cosmetic corrections
    Rev C - Little more work on enhancing detail and tonal range.
    Rev D - Fixed artefact to right of running man, removed the star halo that could be seen under magnification on previous versions, little more work on running man and the lower right of the orion nebula.
    Rev E - Little tidy up of running man as had got a little noisy - think that's all for now!
    I have also posted up a slightly more subtle version in my library, thanks for looking and support.
