I have been sent no images as candidates for POTW this week, so am posting one of my own.  This is the Sculptor Galaxy, imaged from Spain on 2014-10-14 through hazy upper clouds.  It was taken in Spain using a 12.5 inch Planewave scope and QSI 683 CCD camera.  The Image is an LRGB of 60 minutes luminance and 40 minutes for the colours, in 10 minute sub frames.

Please send me your images.
