the combo of the relatively noisy 183MM, bortle 4, and dim nature of this target meant a lot of hours to get the details. This is older data that I finally got around to processing (I was on an astro break for a while but now itching to get back into it).

I like the German Shepard sitting at attention at 11:00

Holy smokes!  That's some serious dedication.

 

I looked up this target and it gets to a maximum altitude in my skies of 43 degrees.  It's dim and low in the sky.  That makes it doubly hard.  

 

That's a seriously impressive capture.

Nice capture!

Took me a bit to find it in KStars, because the search was pointing to another Abell 85 (the galaxy cluster). For others with the same issue as me: this is also known as LBN 576 :)

Indeed great capture!
And very jealous at being able to get 90 hours, even with older data. I had here in 2 months time in total 6 hours of clear skies.
