Notes:* RFGC = Revised Flat Galaxy Catalogue. Ran across this little guy while looking for a suitable target ... but had to put a lot of nights in to getting this image. We are having night and morning fog (i.e. "June Gloom"), so a couple of nights I only got a few images before the fog closed me down ... also, this object 'sets' into the large pine tree to my northwest before I'm done with my set sequence (14 images this time of year)
