What a unique target. While I may not have been able to get the full loop de loop of the tidal streams, the brightest portion was able to come out with a lot of teasing. Apart from the tidal streams though, I was actually even happier with the sharpness of the galaxy and its colors. Definitely thought it would be pretty bland in both details and colors, but it was nice to see I was quite wrong in this case!

Thanks for looking!
