Here's my try at it:

High Resolution version and more image information available at http://www.astronome...php?c=113&p=495

This image was made from a stack of 123 x 5 minute subs (10 1/4 hours total exposure) at ISO 1600 taken with an Orange tube Celestron C-8 and a Gary Honis modified Canon 450D (Baader mod). Guiding was with an ONAG on-axis guider, Lodestar autoguider, and Phd Guiding.

Thanks for looking!

Camera: Canon unmoded XSi
Mount: Celestron CGEM (self hypertuned)
Guiding: Orion SSAG with Orion ST80
Acquisition: BackYardEOS
Stacking: DeepSkyStacker
Processed: PhotoShop CS3
11 x 10 min subs for total of 1hr 50min.

Thank you everyone for selecting this image - I'm quite honored. This was a tricky galaxy, and Jason and Doug both had great images, too.

For June's target, I'd like to tackle Abell 2151 - The Hercules Cluster of Galaxies.
