Description

Last night I tried to fix my guiding / tracking problems and I used this deep space galaxy field for that.

Seven very distant galaxies are in the field of view :

NGC 3848 Magn 13.0
NGC 3833 Magn. 13.8
NGC 3825 Magn. 13.0
NGC 3822 Magn. 13.1
NGC 3820 Magn. 14.4
NGC 3819 Magn. 13.8
NGC 3817 Magn. 13.3

Average distance 280 million light years away !
plus two Abell galaxies, barely visible. Abell 1354: 1440 million Lightyears !!
