NGC 5701, a barred spiral ringed galaxy in Virgo.  Seeing wasn't the greatest, and this target, like most galaxies, needs more focal length.  But it was a clear moonless night in "galaxy season": what else are you going to do?

 

Orion 200mm f/4 Newtonian
Atik 383L+

 

25x 300s L, 1x1
12ea 120s RGB, 2x2

 

Total exposure: 3h17m
