About this image

My previous image of Nereid was OK but this was an attempt to get a better one. I think I succeeded.

Two vermin of the skies photobombed the images. One produced the prominent trail in this image. It is (16095) Lorenball which was magnitude 17.7 according to the MPC. The other was close to the edge of the stack and is not shown here; that one is (45618) 2000 D072 at V=18.2.

Nereid has V=19.1.  The edge-on galaxy at the lower right has not yet been identified.
