That's just so darn beautiful, really is!!  i love the inky black between the stars, and i see an obvious elliptical galaxy there, not sure which one it is, unless my eyes are fooling me, but I'm sure it's an elliptical.

Thanks for the kind comments, Ande and Sunshine.

I think the elliptical galaxy (the one in the lower right quarter) is UGC 4526, although NGC 2637 (slightly below centre) and IC 2388 (slightly above centre) are also, possibly, visible with some imagination!
