Small galaxy showing a lot of details. Excellent image and processing!

Thanks all for commenting. This is the farthest target I've imaged to date at ~106 mly (though Wikipedia has it at 130mly). Hard to believe that those photons took that long to reach the sensor on my camera. Wonder how things are going there...

Nice, we don't see this galaxie very often, well done!

I like how you pulled that bit of nebulosity out of it- good process. That thing is small, good catch! Marc

Well done Steve...I see at least...two hitch hikers? at 3 o'clock and like 6:10?

Sweet shot man. Don't see this one so much.

You got a ton of detail here. I don't think more time would yield much more.

We must really discuss when you are going to donate your mount to me...
