Hi Rolandos,

Nice rendering of this faint fuzzy. Maybe if you digitally blurred the starfield slightly it would take the hard edge off their appearance. I took the liberty of trying it--hope you don't mind. This is a 6% blur.

BTW, I went out last night hoping to take advantage of another clear night here but before long a heavy band of clouds came in from the SE. It hadn't quite reached Perseus and Andromeda yet so, recalling seeing this thread, I decided to take a look at NGC 891 before the transparency went in the tank.

In my C14 it appeared big and faint with just a hint of the dust lane (the clouds were rapidly reaching that part of the sky). I'll have to revisit it under better conditions but I wouldn't have looked last night except for your post. Thanks!

That's a good one, Roland. Sorry I missed it earlier.
