Halloween: Galaxy NGC 891 and the Galaxy cluster Abel 347

I took five hours worth on this target but discarded the first hour due to a bit too much light pollution from the Moon!

48 x 5min subs, flats and bias, with a modded Canon 1000D, ED120APO with reducer, EQ6/ST80/PHD guiding, EQMOD.

There is a good clear dust lane across NGC891.  Abel 347 is a galaxy cluster of around 30 galaxies - there are at least 20 visible in the picture:
