NGC3190 - galaxy in the Hickson 44 Group

It's a little early for "galaxy season" but this target was well placed last

Hickson 44 is an exquisite group of galaxies. The original image was cropped
down to this view, which is 11.1 arc-mins across (approx. 1/3rd the width of a
full moon).

This really needs about 3 hours of exposure, and much more aperture. :O)
