Default ASTRO: NGC 5389, 5379 and 5376

Last night had very good transparency and not too bad seeing, so conditions
were quite good by city standards in spite of the half moon.
To get the field I wanted I had to switch from guidescope to off-axis-guider
as adding the off-axis-guider gives a larger distance between reducer and
camera, and I had to rotate the camera 90 degrees, so north is to the left
in this image.

The "large" galaxy to the left is NGC 5389, above it NGC 5379. A bit above
the center of the image UGC 8859 can be faintly seen, the rather bright NGC
5376 is to the right.

Taken from the middle of Berlin with a 10" Meade ACF at f/6.7 (image scale
ist 0,79 arcseconds/pixel) on a G11 mount, SXV-H9 camera, 39x5 minutes.

The image can also be found at

Nice group. Not one I had on my list. Unfortunately that list is
growing faster than I can image.

Correct domain name is arvig and it is net not com. Prefix is correct.
Third character is a zero rather than a capital "Oh".

that's a bunch of galaxies!

It makes me think of how I need to image Stephan's Quintet this year!
