It's a beauty! Plenty of dust, plenty of detail. Well done!

This is a testament to why we shoot at high ISO with a DSLR. Outstanding work.

Do you use Noel's Astro Tools?

The cooling appears to be really helping here! Our nights here can be extremely cold in winter (48 N latitude) but the sensor only gets to about 5-10 C .
