This is a rough test of terrible image quality of a mosaic project that I'm working on.

If we EVER get some clear moonless skies in Eastern Ontario (a rare event indeed), I'll be replacing this crappy, noisy image with a nice one! Thanks for the Likes, they encourage me to be patient and press on toward the goal!
