Description

After I was done with some dark nebulosity around midnight I let the RASA do some galaxy hunting while I went to sleep. This is what it found.

Apart from the Messier galaxies I count seven NGC galaxies in the image. Then there is a myriad of smaller ones that I assume may have PGC or UGC numbers.

Could not see any disturbing IFN messing with the image in this area.
