Distant Galaxies

A 13 hour LRGB image showing a collection of distant galaxies which was taken with my Esprit 150.

The most notable objects are NGC2276 showing dust lane structure and relatively bright H regions together with the elliptical galaxy NGC2300, with its extensive gaseous envelope. Estimates place both galaxies at around 120 million light years away.
