Astro-image of the day poll

In my most recent "Astro-image of the day" post about Mars, I used a 600-pixel-wide image instead of 500, as I've used for months. This makes a larger, prettier image, but might mess up people's LJ Friends view. On the other hand, people might like even bigger images! So a poll:
Poll #1101676 Astro-image survey: Image size

Which pixel-width images would you prefer that I post for my "Astro-image of the day"?

Mean: 592.59 Median: 600 Std. Dev 101.57
400
1(3.7%)
500
8(29.6%)
600
14(51.9%)
700
0(0.0%)
800
4(14.8%)
900
0(0.0%)
1000
0(0.0%)

While I'm on the subject, do you want to see these images?

Yes, please! Seeing photos of the universe inspires me.
23(71.9%)
Geez, I hate seeing them. Use an LJ-cut!
4(12.5%)
I don't care.
2(6.2%)
Your liberal agenda of promoting facts about science disturbs me.
1(3.1%)

To help you decide on your favorite image width, below are a variety of examples of this same image in different sizes.

500 pixels (my usual size for these posts):


600 pixels (the size I used today):


800 pixels:


1000 pixels:
