My simple M109 - barred spiral galaxy

I saw the Cloudy Nights (http://www.cloudynights.com/) challenge the other month and was immediately struck by how cool this barred spiral looked.  I had to try and it turns out to be a somewhat hard target at 10th magnitude and small to boot.  Here's my shot.  I wasn't even sure I had in a single 1-2 min test shot and conditions we just average on the transparency with a waxing moon early in the session.  I'm still pretty happy with the result!
