caught NGC 2683 (Halifax)

Before the clouds rolled in, the BGO was able to image NGC 2683 for me. A very nice edge-on galaxy in Lynx. One of the RASC Finest NGCs. Is it my imagination or is it gravitationally disturbed?

RASC Finest galaxy NGC 2683 in luminance

Luminance only, 60 seconds subexposures, 10 stacked shots. FITS Liberator, Paint.NET. North is up; east is left.

There are many little fuzzies in the image.

LEDA 2032797 to the north-west.

LEDA 2030257 to the west.

LEDA 2027348 to the south-west.

LEDA 2030408 to the south, close. Another spiral?

LEDA 2028167 to the south-east.

There appear to be more but SkyTools 3 Pro does not identify them.

PGC 24945 to the east.

LEDA 2034115, LEDA 2034935, LEDA 2034078, LEDA 2034818, LEDA 2034409, and LEDA 2034864 to the north-east.

Again, I believe there are more still.
