The field around NGC 3226. Another galaxy of my favorite catalogue at the moment - Arp 94. You might notice a very faint loop pointing upwards from the interacting pair.
Captured at Olly Penrice's Les Granges in south of France. We wanted to add colour, but waxing gibbous kept us from getting good data without too much background. Atik11000 on a TEC140 mounted on an Avalon Linear.
Processing in PI (DBE, Decon, MLT, HT, HDRMT) and some cosmetic operations in PS.
