318 mm is a nice fl for this target (depending on sensor size, of course). Even though the galaxy is bright, it pays off to collect a lot of data, and capture the outer regions as well as the inner dust lanes.

Thanks for the tip.--I will be using the ASI 1600--so a pretty good FOV, and due to the small pixels will have a pixel scale of 2.46, which is quite good for wide field (widish). Its lower than the STT-8300 and the reduced Televue, which is 2.58, so I am hoping to be able to resolve some fine details on steady nights.

That will frame it very nicely, with some room to spare around it.
