This Galaxy I am told is near and bright but obscured by Milky Way dust. I was at a dark site and managed some longish exposures for a webcam with IR filter only for luminance. I had to stretch the image a little more than usual. I have attached a mid size thumbnail; full size image and exposure / processing details are at:
