    Just adding a few words after being awarded IOTD : thank you for liking this image !
    I put a lot of efforts to learn and fix issues from my first images and I am so happy that astrobin community noticed that.

    No kind of sharpening, deconvolution or any star shaping tool was used.
    Only linear/non linear stretching and color calibration/saturation.
    Standard preprocessing (biais, darks, flats)

    Thank you all for your support and feedback.
