That's the best of Reflection from M78 I have seen so far! Thank you Phil! I have been neglecting APOD, since I've joined Caedes! I'd better go and catch up right now!

A definitive 'Phil folder favorite'! This makes such a beautiful desktop. It is perfect for star-gazing........I can now enjoy the gorgeous new desktop that I have...compliments of you of course! Once again, many, many heartfelt thanks and also for the other view of Saturn! Whew, those two images of Saturn make me really realize what a small part I am of something bigger! ;=)
