    What a great galaxy to image! I finally finished processing the data after adding Ha. The Ha data really made a big difference. This image is 20 hours of exposure and you can see some faint fuzzies in the background. One PGC galaxy that I found: PGC 5899 - Mag 14.91.

    Thanks for looking, questions/ comments much appreciated!
