Silver Dollar Galaxy from Hawaii

Hello Astronuts,

This is the first of several images that I was able to glean from my dark Hawaii site couple of weeks ago. This is one night's work during testing of the 1600 encoder mount modeling. I know it isn't APOD quality, but represents only one night of dark skies and decent seeing. This galaxy needs about 60 hours to do it justice.
