May 2013: hundreds of galaxies!

For some time, I had been thinking of imaging really deep, to get faint and distant galaxies. So, I decided to point to a part of the Coma Berenices galaxy cluster, surrounding galaxy NGC4889.

The result is absolutely amazing┬áto me. I’ve been able to identify 124 named galaxies, but there’re a lot of faint specks there which are probably galaxies too, so I guess that this picture may contain some 200 to 300 galaxies.
