I have wrestle with this object many times and never been satisfied with the results…although I must admit, this one is getting closer.  40 exposures of 360 seconds each at f/3.2 and ISO 1600 on the Canon 200mm lens went into this shot.

Shot this on the Sept. 25th, but had problems with the data so just got around to processing it.
