IC 1613 (Caldwell 51) was one of the twelve galaxies that Hubble originally included in the local group . It is another galaxy closer than Andromeda. Even though IC 1613 - by numbers - should be as "bright" as i.e. M74 it was much more difficult for me to extract it from the background noise. Maybe it were my local conditions. At f/7 more exposure time would be required.
