Great shot, Gregg.
Dr. Wikipedia says that this galaxy would be visible to the naked eye if it weren't for that intervening dust. That amazes me.

Hi all:

IC 342 is a large face-on spiral that would appear much brighter if if didn't lie in the galactic plane. Intervening dust makes IC 342 appear somewhat red:
