another one, NGC 5005! (Halifax)

All right. The Burke-Gaffney robot captured a third party. NGC 5005, another lovely galaxy. This RASC Finest NGC lives in Canes Venatici. aka Caldwell 29.

RASC Finest galaxy NGC 5005 in luminance

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

Noted LEDA 2095155, north of 5005, above and left of the star J131056.4+371034.

The very small dim fuzzy LEDA 2091749 is just west of the big galaxy.

LEDA 2089756 is obvious to the south. While large, it is very faint.

I can see the tiny faint almond of LEDA 2095424, north-north-east.
