Nice image, any info on the magnitude of the galaxies?
When or if you can, perhaps you might consider going after Arp 147:

Rod,

Thanks for taking a look and the comments. They range between mag 13 and 15, 4613 being the smallest and faintest. Arp 147 is pretty cool and is in the same magnitude range but twice as distant, maybe I'll give it a shot. I really need a 1/2 meter or larger scope (Hubble)smile for these...maybe someday.
