Thanks Grotemobile. I'm glad you think so :D It took a lot of time to get all the subs I wanted, as the last few months the sky has been very hazy and not crystal clear as I had wished for. 

I was finally happy with this image. More so, as I now wish to concentrate on M86 and friends in the Markarian Chain, if we get some more clear skies before the moon comes around again :)
