NGC 6744 Galaxy - A galaxy similar to the Milky Way

BETTER DETAILS (open the link, facebook mismatches the images):

NGC 6744 is a spiral galaxy believed to be similar to our Milky Way, however, NGC 6744 is almost twice the diameter of the Milky Way.

It is about 30 million light years away in the southern constellation of Pavo (the Peacock), and is as bright as 60 billion suns.

I always wanted to record this wonder of the sky, fortunately this year I managed, were 4 nights to make the most of frames and try to make it.
