To my version of the 'Happy Christmas' dataset posted on SGL by Olly Penrice that I recently posted here on Astrobin I have here added high resolution data from the Liverpool Telescope that I also previously posted (

So this is from Olly's TEC140 Triplet Apo/Mesu 200/Atik 460 mono rig, providing the wider field data, and a 2 metre RC telescope providing details to the galaxy.
