6D NGC4565 CP WB SB GX CI SH SS NR EHDSO COL SMI LCMF HPF FLAT

March has been cloudy and I mean cloudy. I have only had two clear nights all month and they were at almost full moon. I was just desperate to get anything and beggers cant be choosers. Also Orion sets behind a big tree after only about two hours of dark with my position in my backyard so I tried something new. This is NGC4565 - the needle galaxy.
