New deep-sky image – the Whale and Hockey Stick galaxies plus “The Mice”

Noel Carboni has just finished processing this wide-field deep-sky image from a few days back.  This is the Whale & Hockey stick region in Coma Berenices and you can also see “The Mice” lower far left.  Shows that I don’t have the best setup for galaxy work, so this time of the year is always a bit difficult for me.  Managed to salvage this one by balancing the galaxies with the bunch of bright stars at the bottom – but I can’t always play this trick.  The wide-field setup is really built for star fields and large nebulae, that season is due soon 🙂
