    Excellent detail in that image. I really like it! Especially if you can pick up such a faint fuzzy as PGC 3805570 (...taking the number given above...).

    Clears,

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful image! The detail in it, including multiple stars and the two other galaxies as well as the Sunflower, demands careful examination. This image makes the Sunflower much more interesting to me.

    Very nice example of what you can accomplish with a 80mm on an AVX.
