This is an early picture with my C8 EHD. At this time I was guiding with my SW ED80 in parallel with the telescope. Due to differential flexure, I was limited to 2 or 3 min subexposure maximum, and still some star elongation can be observed.

I found this galaxy very interesting to image. I plan to acquire some more exposure with my AO to improve the resolution.
