This was one of my first attempts at long exposure astrophotography. This is a 1 hour exposure that was supposed to be combined with another 1 hour shot but the second shot didn't turn out. I think these galaxies are at the edge of what I can shoot from my home site (~9.5 mag galaxies). I have to use a Deep Sky filter because of light pollution. It is a lot easier to see all of the galaxies in this picture in the inverted image map.
