Here is a challenging object for those of us with small format CCDs - first because of its size, a good 3 degrees of sky and second because of its faintness. I have attached a mid sized thumb nail of my attempt. Full size image and exposure / processing details at:

Once again, you astound me with that webcam and processing routine, Jim.

Excellent work!
