I can see numerous objects that look like galaxies. I looked at Cartes du Ciel and there many galaxies nearby.

I'm amazed, how those small, distant galaxies have such complex surface structures sometimes.

"Lost" NGC. NGC 2253. Some sources refer to small Open Cluster of 4 stars. But on this number I found very nice small 15 mag spiral galaxy.

NGC 7463,  NGC 7465

This trio of faint galaxies is a degree northwest of 54 Pegasi NGC 7465, a barred spiral, is the brightest and most conspicuous of the three. NGC 7464 is an E1 peculiar galaxy. It is the smallest and faintest member of the group.

NGC 7463, a Sb spiral with a suspected bar, is at the northwest corner of the group. It is the largest of the three galaxies but rather faint.

Great image, looks like you also caught two other galaxies, possibly mag 15 - 16, one to the east and one to the south of the group.  Nice work!
