Thanks everyone, appreciate the kind words. All of the images were so well done and this object wasn't all that easy. I'll give some thought to the next object.

best regards,

Ken

Thanks Oleg. Your field of view and resolution was really stunning. Good to meet you as well. Looks like you're almost on the other side of the world from me. I'm in Texas. Hope you're imaging now under cleark skies!

For the next object, I pick NGC 7331 (Milky Way's twin). Looks like it will be high in the sky during next new moon cycle early in the month of September. Some good hours of availability
