This is a combination of 5 images, each of 480 seconds The images were taken with a Pictor 1616 attached to an Meade 10" F/6.3 telescope. A Pictor 201XT was attached to an ETX for guiding. Each of the images was corrected with a dark frame and a flat field. This image is binned, an unbinned version is available.
You might be able to notice a smudge to the left of the galaxy and below the center line. This is on other pictures but I do not know what it is.
