This may have been a little overly ambitious. I really wanted to try and get the irregular galaxy and it's cluster buddies, but again, the field is far too wide to actually make out any real detail in the galaxy. You can see it's irregular (it's the galaxy nearly dead center), but that's about it. There are a few dozen galaxies in the entire field and I do like it a lot, but I'd need much sharper optics and a longer focal length to actually do it justice.
