Stellar! I thought you'd use some of your E200 stash for that much work.
Yes, you would think that I would! I have very little Superia left, half a dozen rolls. Negative films tend to have less halation with the star images. This creates a finer image. That being said, E200 has wonderful properties, and I will use it for a project such as this next year.

Currently there is no b&w film that can create a similar image. Back in the day one would hypersensitize Kodak Technical Pan by baking it in a chamber of forming gas. A messy process, but it had tremendous recording power, especially in the desired red end of the spectrum, allowing capture of faint emission nebulae. Fuji Acros works great right out of the box, and even better when hypered, but it lacks a red response as it is orthopanchromatic. I wish it were otherwise. Red sensitive b&w films all have poor reciprocity.

I'm very much pleased by this faux b&w image as it comes very close to the old hypered TP look. The detail seen in this image would be very hard to accomplish with a DSLR, especially if you wanted to enlarge it to the size I mentioned.

The Milky Way from Scutum to Cepheus.

The original could make a finely dtailed poster as tall as an interior wall, say 24" x 96"

Outstanding image James! I've really enjoyed seeing your wide field astro photos, here and on your Blog. Question -- do you sell large prints of these? I may have overlooked it, but I couldn't find anything on your website or blog about prints for sale.

I have two full days here (now into the second day. Weather is, lets say less than perfect. Raining quite hard today so will be surprised if my camera leaves my backpack. These were from yesterday which was very murky

I suppose unreal colour mix is due to the very long exposure, which no color film could apparently render either.
