I liked your first redition very much already, but the new one is even better! The large blue star is now very nice as well.
What I find impressive as well is that you got square stars! This means resolution of the RH200 + your guiding stay within one pixel. Cool!

Brilliant work, I would just nitpick one detail, which at least for me degrades a little bit the stunning picutre- the black point is black BLACK at your processings, by my taste I would appreciate to see a bit rised black point. With white point set slightly bellow and black slightly above the full range, you will get kind of more pleasing smoother appearance, and I am sure it will be one of the best M31 we all have seen:-)

Philippe, this is a gorgeous image.  It's interesting to follow your processing versions as time has gone on.  If you have the time, would it be possible to identify what you did differently in each version?  I really like how your stars have continued to improve in color and have reduced in size/intensity while the detail within M31 continued to increase.

Marvelous work!
