This image is still in process.   It was not the best night for attempting this since transparency was poor at the time of imaging it.   Lots of LP in the 4 hrs of exposure accumulated and almost overwhelmed the dim galaxies.  The color was zapped out, so I took an image with only about 2 hrs of time and used it as color and the 4 hrs of exposure was used as luminosity.
