You could get the same at less than a tenth of that cost.

I've never been a huge fan of wide-field shots, I prefer shots of individual objects. Some widefield shots of things like Orion can be quite spectacular, revealing all the nebulosity we never see with our eyes even using telescopes, but a lot are kind of hazed-out by all the hydrogen gas in an area, which is find when there is structure to it, but not so great when it just looks like haze.

Do you consider the Milky Way an individual object?
If not, then what about M31?

It is understood what Rich meant when he wrote 'individual object,' at least by those whose understand English.

Big swath Milky Way shots have never interested me. M31 is an exception to the deepsky rule, they can trace it to over 5 degrees, but not many other objects approach that size.
