Galaxy NGC 772 --- 130 million light years away...

This was the most distant *primary target* for me to date. Very small and very dim. I captured this the same night as my NGC 7331 result with the same RC scope, QSI camera, and AP mount. The Moon had risen and was at 65% illumination - and it was also close to my FOV, which made this very difficult (and bad decision by me to go after this one on this night!). So it goes 🙂
