Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

BTW, if anyone is curious what's the possible maximum in redshift: 1089, that's the redshift of the Cosmic Microwave Background, which was a yellowish light when released (the thermal radiation of non-transparent plasma turned transparent gas), but the Universe expanded 1090x since then. However, it took some time from there for the first stars to light up, so the most distant galaxies observable even in theory will have redshifts in the dozens at most.
