Terrible weather over the last two months has me reprocessing past data.

This version is much softer than the original mosaic ( I tried to avoid over sharpening and over saturating. I also spent more time trying to get nicer stars.

All processing was in PI and PS.

Thanks for looking, any C&C are most welcome.
