NGC3718 in Ursa Major

A very nice galaxy, which I believed to be really difficult and very dim. In the end the picture comes out quit ok, with good colors and lots of details. It’s an amazing exploration trying to identify all distant objects including quasars and galaxies many beyond the 20th magnitude.

Taken in Meldert (Hoegaarden) with the 120mm Esprit @ F7, ASI2600mc, 340x120s. Stacking and processing in AstroPixelprocessor, finishing in CC Elements.
