I'm actually quite happy with this one.
Never thought I would be able to shoot something like this right from my front lawn.

Some details:
* Fought with some wind and guiding problems (still some rotation in the guiding cam and balance with the new camera and filter wheel is is not ok)
* Processed the usual for Hubble Palette.
* Used Nik to reduce noise and Topaz Macro filters for some detail
