My favorite Seyfert II galaxy. This year I tried a bit deeper, with wider FOV. Of course nothing even close to the killer photos posted here (eg Tyler Allred's recent), only the best I could made for the moment in one night. This was my second photo after many months, during Eastern Holidays, and I have to admit I enjoyed it a lot. Of course there 1-2 issues (halos and the CCD that is not centered), which I'll try to correct as soon as possible. Also in retrospect, I think I should had left NGC4346 out of the frame in order to center the others better.

Thank you David. I like the way this CCD can give wide FOV, while you can maintain good resolution in 1:1.
