Got out last night and added time on my M95, as well as started time on M88 and co.  Managed 23 lights all of 180 seconds on my 7D (unmodded)  Processed in Pixinsight then Lightroom. I was Very surprised at the outcome. Thus far, i think it is my best image to date.  Since moving from my old house in a white zone, to my new house in a blue/green zone, my data has got SOOOOOOOOOOO much better.  Still i find myself looking at either a new Scope (bigger than my AT65EDQ) or a new CCd (ZWO 1600MM or QHY 163M) 

 

So thoughts? Anything i should do on the image? and would New scope r camera be best?  

Any comments appreciated.

That picture is amazing.  You can play count the galaxies and probably miss some still.
