Once again I point my telescope at 7331. With the focal reducer I have now got many galaxies 7331, 7335, 7336, 7337, 7340 Not bad for one frame. Alas, the star shapes from the reducer problem do not help. :( :( SC1.5 camera, F3.3, 100x40s exp, captured in k3, debayered in aviraw, stacking in k3 with flat, other work in photoshop. I then layered in the core of 7331 from a previous F5 image. I was suprise by how big 7331 is - larger than I had ever seen at F5!
