A beautiful exploration! The deep space images that attract my attention the most are the ones in which detail is very sharp, sparse, suggestive in depth-perspective balance that is comfortable with darkness approaching the impenetrable. Some images clutter so much starry detail that the viewer feels crowded out of the image-window. Cosmos pictures should always invite the view a travel corridor in...that leaves them with a sense that there's more at the distance or around the corner or at the center for them to yet see. For instance, I'd eliminate the gaseous spirals that are similar to the central one. I'd tend to do a slight off-centering of the main gaseous spiral, putting a touch more 3-d darkness around the bright center where the view can "hope to gain access". Beautiful image with suggestions only, not negative criticisms.

sternenmap ist ganz gut geworden

was mich stört:
alle galaxien rotieren in die selbe richtung um die eigene achse

die große galaxie hat zu wenig struktur und abwechslung, und die leuchtzentren sind mir alle noch zu weich und groß
