captured NGC 5746 (Halifax)

BGO imaged RASC Finest NGC 5746 for me. An intriguing edge-on galaxy in Virgo. Dark lane in foreground. Bright core. 

RASC Finest galaxy NGC 5746 in luminance

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

Spotted PGC 52633, a faint, small fuzzy galaxy north-west of the needle, near the top-right of the image.

Noted LEDA 1214810, a small, oblong fuzzy, north-east of the big galaxy. Nestled in the top-left.

Is that a double near the bottom-right?
