NGC 7331 and Stephan's Quintet
I've been wanting to capture this for years and only now have the equipment to be able to give it a shot.
Skies are quite light polluted here, so I was surprised to find some tidals in the data. Good think this object is a target near zenith.
Imagine what the night skies would look like from a planet in one of these little gems.
Thanks for looking.
