NGC 6070

About 118 million light years away, NGC 6070 has many faint galaxies in the field of view. Some being so dim, I need a larger aperature scope. This was a 7 minute exposure, exposed for 75 minutes.

NGC 5982, 5981, 5985

Commonly known as the "Draco Trio", NGC 5985 (right), 5982 (left), and 5981 (center) are about 100 million light years away in the constellation Draco the Dragon.
