Thanks Ross and Peter. Apologies for the delay in replying but I've only just returned from a short trip to NZ.

I queried it on the deep sky hunters group back in July 2010 but didn't get any significant response. More recently Sakib Rasool on the dsh group said I should write to Dr Dante Minniti who leads the survey team and I got this response:

Dear Mr Crouch,
This is very interesting, and thanks for the excellent image.
Copying this to my colleagues so they know the full story.
We do not mind at all that you are named codiscoverer!
My father is also a serious amateur astronomer, this is why I got into Astronomy.
With best regards,
Dante

To say the least this sounds very encouraging
