Boring elliptical

There is not much fun in seeing elliptical galaxies. Mostly they are symmetrical fuzzy blobs with no detail at all. Sometimes in the same field of view some spiral appears and it makes the frame more pleasant. 
But not this time. I made the picture below in May this year. It appeared so dull, that I refused to process it till recent. So here it is - a few elliptical galaxies nearby M60 and M59 in constellation of Virgo. Made with 130mm refractor and Atik383 camera, 4.5 hours of total exposure.

Clear skies!
