For image scale I dropped the focal reducer and went 1085 mm focal length at f/7 with the AP 155 EDFS scope.  One of the better deep galaxy fields outside of the Virgo cluster.  Dominated by ellipticals instead of more interesting spirals.  Same camera Canon Ra.  About 70 minutes exposure time without counting the darks.

That is such a cool area of the sky Steve.     How much of this is viewable by eye, or just photographic?   Did you try to view any of this visually through the scope?

I love deep galaxy fields.     I need to hunt this one down myself.
