Description

Perfect target for the "galaxy season" - a beautiful spiral with a Hickson Galaxy Group aside.
Recorded right in front of my house in the own garden, not in a dry desert or remote controlled far away high in the mountains. So please bear with me that I can't get the same details as other captures of that region.
