Such a cool image.

Thanks for that Trevor. I've shot this a few times, but this version is by far a personal best for me.

Nice job on this. I just tried this object first with a 70mm and then with a 102mm. I think your's came out better. Very the detail on NGC 4438.

Oh, and thanks for the welcome!

Thank you Marc. I'm particularly happy with this image as it's my personal best on this target. I've never had the amount of detail in the various galaxies and I just love all of the background galaxies in the shot as well.

Thanks for the comment.
