NGC 4038/39, the antennae galaxies, rise just 21 degrees above my horizon. In addition, my view to the south is somewhat limited. From July 5 to July 9, 2018 the horizon view was reasonably clear that I tried NGC 4038. But I did not manage more than luminance.
The initial data was not very good, I couldn't get more out with PixInsight.
