Here's my try at it:

High Resolution version and more image information available at http://www.astronomersdoitinthedark.com/index.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!

Here is my attempt at NGC5907 in the spirit of participation. Could not bring out the details, probably should have used the modded dslr, instead I used the unmodded one.

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.
