Jules thanks. I probably spend more time goofing w/color then anything else-it drives me crazy sometimes. Marc

Wow Marc, that is just too cool, great capture man.

Thanks, I appreciate it. Maybe w/another night (or 2) enough tail to process. Marc

Holy crap, this is awesome! Excellent work, Marc! 5 stars from me man!

The tidal tail is faint. Very. But with a major stretch and the inverted image you can see it at the bottom edge of the image.

When I saw the lum stack I was pretty psyched, some detail to work with! Neil, I kept eyeballing that tail, but that's in your league of processing, I'd make a mess of it lol. Hey guys thanks for the shout, Marc

He shoots, he SCORES!!!! Well done Marc. See, size does matter, lol!!!

Really nice shot Marc. The dust lane detail is excellent.

I popped it into Photoshop to see if you had the tidal tail on NGC 3628 and sure enough you do. Have to uber stretch it to see it, but's there. Sweet!

Nicely done Mr Basti! You captured some nice detail in the galaxies as well as some faintness. Well done.
