NGC3718, NGC3729 and Hickson 56
« on: 2017 May 13 13:02:41 »
Hi guys,
16 hours and 40 minutes of deep field for this peculiar pair of galaxies. Amazingly, I've been able to record a couple of really faint galaxies, faint as 22g magnitude.
There is literately dozens of background galaxies which I simply didn't had time to mark them all. Love these unusual galaxies. Imaged in 4 nights during March and April 2017.
Hope you enjoy it!
