Taken from my backyard observatory in Canberra with a 12.5" RCOS Ritchey Chretien at F9 and a SBIG STL6303E CCD camera.  The image was acquired on 4 July 2010.

This is a LRGB exposure with L=70, R=60 and G=B=70m.  All exposures unbinned.  Astrodon NIR filters were used.  R, G and B are assigned to bands peaking at 850, 830 and 750nm respectively.  L is infrared luminance with zero pass shorter than 700nm.
