Description

60min of integral Ha exposure of NGC 2222 (+14.2m) galaxy and NGC 2221 (+13.9m) that got caught next to it, captured remotely using Telescope #1 (ASA-RC D = 1m f/6.8, FLI ProLine 16803) system of ChileScope observatory. Two even more dim PGC galaxies are barely registering in the field of view as well.
