A couple of tiny (visually, at least) galaxies near the edge of M83's halo. The larger one is PGC 48132 and the smaller one is PGC 724525. I was pleased to see some detail in these thanks to the amazing data from Martin Pugh's CDK17 at Heaven's Mirror observatory.

Full M83 image will follow in a few days...
