very good Michael !

Did you try to boost the background to see if you captured IFN ?

Hi Dan!
Nope, I did not even try it. With just 4hrs not really making sense for a quality image.

Very nice Michael. Clean image! Modded cam I assume?

I'm used to seeing a tad more saturation;)

Hi Nate!
Thx and yes, modded but originally, not afterwards. And yes too - there are so many (over)saturated versions out there.

That is one of the most detailed shot I have seen for this galaxy! I like the detail on the cigar.
