Here is a not quite centered but rich star field around NGC 891. This is 7 shots stacked in Registax at ISO 800 of 4 minutes each. I used my Canon 20da at f/4.5. You can see the coma at the edges of the shot quite clearly. The skies have been very steady for the past couple nights but change is coming to our unusually clear Alaskan weather tomorrow !

That's a nice capture, especially for only 28 minutes integration. Do I see some faint fuzzies near the bottom of the image as well?

Here it is cropped with a bit more processing.

Sharp details and color looks good , always extra points for manually guiding in the freezing weather
