Astrophotography - Imaging another galaxy - Messier 106

In July 2012 I already imaged M106 with my DMK31AU03.AS camera (no guiding). Now I wanted to try the same object with the Atik383L+ camera to see the difference.
There are additional galaxies around in that picture - NGC4248, NGC4231, NGC4232, NGC4217 and NGC4226! Here is a full resolution image which better shows the details of the image.
For stacking I used DeepSkyStacker 3.3.2 with Kappa-Sigma Clipping.
