Inspired by Michael Feigenbaum's recent image I thought I would have a go too. This target was previously unknown to me. I've gone deep, with 98 x 600s luminance subs. For me this field is similar to the Hubble Deep Field images, with literally dozens of galaxies, but suitable for those of us who can't afford a space telescope.
