If you brought attention to it first and you have proof of the post with a date - mate you are at least equally one of the discoverers in my mind

Thanks Mike. The ESO release was yesterday. I contacted the deep sky group in late July 2010 after taking the image on 4 July 2010. I've emailed them again so we'll see what happens. These guys are supposed to know all the tricks regarding new discoveries. I'm off to NZ on Saturday for a short trip so I might not know the outcome for a few days.
