NGC 5985 group in Draco

NGC 5985 group in Draco

Another try at this group of galaxies, worked out pretty good this time with longer exposures and autoguiding that worked nearly flawlessly and provided round stars. Probably just lucky!
I tried a 10 minute exposure which did get in deeper, but the guiding didn't like that long.
