absolutely amazing area ~ though it looks even better on DR2 ~ not sure why, galaxies on DR3 look washed-out, with no structure visible ~ guess there must be a technical reason for this :confused:

I think DR3 has higher dynamic range. If you zoom in on one of the galaxies and switch between DR2 and DR3 you will see less background noise in DR3.

I knew there had to be a logical explanation ~ thanks for that :+1:
