Faint fuzzies NCG3733/56/38 and friends

Recommended Posts

Unexpected clearing skies late last night. :shock:

So as I could not decide on a suitable Ha target and the moon and poor transparency made going for a detailed image of a closer galaxy not a good idea, I decided to try for getting as many faint fuzzies in one shot as I could(quantity rather than qulity).

10 @ 5 mins with CLS filter.

Not the prettiest image but fun to do .

I think I can see at least 25 galaxies in the FOV, NGC3733/56/38 at least.
