Messier 106

This is a duplicate object from the Messier album, but I'm posting this different capture here anyway. This image of M106 was acquired over three different nights at the Winter Star Party in 2014, and was the first runner up to my winning image of the Whale and Hockey Stick. The former edition of this object was captured with a DSLR, and this CCD image shows a bit better noise control and color depth.
