Another small galaxy taken with a small telescope. This was a fun project because I took a test shot expecting it to be way too small to be satisfying at my image scale. I was surprised that I got as much with the test image as I did, so I poured on the exposure and did a little processing (gradients, noise reduction, slight curves).

I played with trying to tease more structure out of the galaxy but chose the quiet dignity of leaving it alone.
