This was supposed to be a 2 panel mosaic showing a cluster of galaxies in this region... and I got 2 panel worth of data. However, the sky conditions were quite bad apparently, even though I shot both panel on same days , both Panels ended up with very different SNR after DBE and after trying to see if I can clean it up, I just stopped doing it and processed panel 1 itself containing M58.

I really should try this target with the Edge11 (hoping to get it back on the mount soon) but it still looks nice with the other interacting pair in the field.
