This image of M 66 was taken with a 26 inch f/5.4 reflector using a Canon 20da DSLR at ISO 1600. There were 5 frames shot at 4 minutes each.

Other than being a bit out of focus, amazing detail in this image.

Thanks Michael ! Here in Alaska it is very rare to get images that are not subject to any turbulence. This is one of the better evenings we get. Usually plenty of star bloating and fuzzy shooting here especially in a big mawed  reflector scope !.
