    Agreed, but still a mystery.
    I wouldn't expect any piece of it (except a gas cloud)
    to be brighter than +1 or so,
    and apparantly many of the dots are several magnitudes fainter
    than the brightest.
    If so, they could just as well be stars
    (though as I implied not so many in that FOV)
