This is a crop of my larger 2-panel mosaic that I think improves the flow and overall composition a great deal. What do you think?

Version B is probably my final version of this image for now. I think the flow, color, and star size/intensity are as close to my vision for this project as I will achieve with my current processing skills and the data I have.
