This is a rich field of galaxies in the constellation of Pegasus. The two major groupings are the Deer Lick Group, in the upper-left, and Stephan's Quintet in the lower-right. NGC 7331 is the largest and most obvious galaxy in this picture, and is the "showcase piece" in the Deer Lick Group. The tracking seemed a bit better in the frames of this image versus previous ones, perhaps due to the insertion of the barlow lens in the guide scope, doubling its effective focal length. This is a composite crop of both galaxy groups at roughly 75% size. A full-resolution image is also available. North is up.
