Well, after many tries and many failures. I finally got a shot of this darn thing. First attempt was in a crunch for time and didn't get it, second attempt (40min) was ruined after I forgot to close the shutter and proceeded to change lenses (with a red light), third attempt was ruined when the battery went dead. Finally on a separate night the 4th and 5th shot came together.

Nothing like being jingxed (spelling?) on this object.

2 x 40min with a ST80 F5 refractor on Kodak PJ400.

Comments appreciated, Robert.
