Description

Galaxy 11 of (hopefully) 12 this galaxy season and the last galaxy image from my RC for a while. This was a fun one, but it was also rather difficult. I think I need a bigger scope...

There are so many galaxies in the background. I particularly like the galaxy cluster in the upper left part of the uncropped image. If anyone has any additional information on that, I'd love to hear it.
