These two galaxies were not well positioned for me last night, sinking low into the local light pollution to my north, but I did manage to tease out some detail. They were both "very bright" as far as galaxies go from the suburbs in my 4" scope.

Nice work. Always nice to see two galaxies in the same eyepiece.
