Ina addition to the odd one you mentioned, there appears to be a pair of interacting galaxies at the edge of the frame at 2 o'clock.

The hero looks great, diaphinous and ethereal as you say it should.
Just wondering about the star colours though, they look a little "coloured in" at the cores?

Regardless, it's a great image - Nice work team!
Thanks so much Andy. We've had another good look at the stars, and they are as you describe. Silly processing error - trying to do colour balance on an already burned out star core. That is fixable. But the big problem is noise. We need another night dedicated to RGB.

Much Mojo in that one.
Thanks Peter, that's encouraging.

Thanks Paul. Perhaps we'll get a couple nights of better seeing next new moon. The beastie will be around for quite a while. it's such a nice galaxy (and such an interesting deep field) that it's worth another go.
