This shot is of a small group of galaxies in the constellation of Canes Venatici. It shows spiral NGC5033 below and left of centre, while the galaxy above and to the right is NGC5005. Also visible are NGC5002 (right of centre) and NGC5014 (towards the bottom). Galaxy hunters will be able to spot a couple of fainter fuzzies as well. Taken with an Atik One through an Equinox 80, it was composed from 12 x 5min luminance frames (binned 1×1) and 8 x 3min each for R, G and B (binned 2×2).
