Abel 370 - Cetus

It so happens that at the moment, Cetus is visible through my small gap in the trees.

Fred Watson describing an ESA image of Abel 370: 'If ever a single image proclaimed the staggering complexity of the Universe, this is it.'

I have the coords: Ra 2h 39m 50.5s Dec -01 35" 08'
It measures 3.57 X 3.44 arc min.

Using my modified 12" lightbridge, on the EQ8 i think it is doable.
The FOV for this scope is about 40X30 arc min.

I haven't found any amateur image of this space, but I'm sure someone has given it a go.

Any thoughts?

Attached image is from NASA (I think).
