A deepish image of NGC7331 and its little fuzzy friends from Jim & Linda Powell's TEC 160FL at DSW (and a little luminance from the DSW RCOS 14.5" to add an extra smidge of detail to the depth.) I tried to bring out some of the faint features like the IFN, dwarf satellite galaxies and the 27 mag/arcsec^2 suspected stellar stream.
