Description

A tiny grouping of 5 galaxies in a row, 16th to 18th magnitude in Ursa Major.
A challenge to see how faint I could go in my industrial park with massive light pollution. The galaxy chain showed up in my 130 refractor images but it took my 17" Astrograph to bring out detail in this tiny group.
