Perfect shot. Very nice lighting in the sky, at the wingtip as well as on the engine pylon.
Is it just me, or is the Andromeda Galaxy visible slightly?

Beautiful pre-dawn shot. The best I've seen I think.

And to the earlier poster, that is indeed M31 that is visible below and to the right of Cassiopeia. Good catch. For those who can't pick it out, look for the slightly hazy looking "streak" just right of dead center in the image. Or look at the wiki article on Andromeda.
