Hi,

After 23 hours integration time and the same amount of processing a bit of tidal streams are finally visible.

This is NGC5907 in Draco.

Thanks for looking!

Mark

Nicely done. I failed miserably to pick up anything. I don't have the clear skies needed unfortunately.

Those streams are around 27 mags/sq/arcsec and fainter. The animation on the formation of those streams is very interesting and worth a look.

Nice Job!

Kindest Regards,

Thanks guys,

Special thanks to Lee for the idea to image.

Bill,

It should be dwarf galaxy like PGC12345 or something.

Mark

i took the liberty of overlaying mark's fine image onto theskyX to identify background galaxies...looks like PGC54419

Mark's NGC5907 annotated in TheSkyX
