This is my latest galaxy, NGC 4236. Taken over two short sessions, ~160 minutes exposure combined in LRGB. QHY2Pro, 10" f/4.7 Skywatcher Newtonian used. PI for processing. No darks, bias or flats used. Just don't bother at the moment :-)

 

I wonder if the group of yellow-ish 'stars' near the upper right corner are actually galaxies?

Here is an annotated version with a darker background. Maybe the top right objects (PCG2730848) are a mixture of galaxies and stars and not really a galaxy cluster?
