Roland, I never do this galaxy because it is so hard to make look good. This is one of the best I have ever seen. You nailed the colors better than I have seen.
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.
