*Revision -B- has more star shrinking to better show the faint nebulosity in this overwhelming starfield. Which do you prefer?*
*Revision -C- is a overedited version that doesn't look very nice at 100%, but shows more nebulosity when not zoomed in. It was done merely to show the nebulosity better, and is not my final version.*
