Description

Lots of Galaxies In pisces !

Before I continued my work on Uranus and Neptun last night, I came across this special region
of the sky and as I am still examining the power of my new 12" Dobson for various
astronomical objects, I gave it a try. Not really long exposure anyway.

Most of the galaxies are mag. 13 to 15 ( IC 1680 mag. 15, for example ) or higher.
Typically, a mag. 14 galaxy has 250 million lightyears distance.

B ) reprocessed according to CCD Inspector Quality Analysis
C, final ) more refinement, normalized orientation and full scale image (no crop)

CCD Inspector analysis : Seeing condition FWHM 2.09"
(FWHM = Full-Width-at-Half-Maximum)
