M106 and Friends

Spiral galaxy M106, aka NGC4258, is the bright galaxy listed at mag 8.3.  Just to the right is NGC4248.  The edge-on below to the right is NGC4217; on the upper right is NGC4224; and on the upper left is NGC4346.  There are probably 30-40 other small galaxies faintly visible in the frame.  M106 lies between Ursa Major and Canes Venatici.

25 exposures, 4 minutes each = 100 minutes total exposure. .  Canon EOS 20Da (unmodified), ISO 1600, Takahashi TOA 130 (a 5" APO refractor) with reducer, Losmandy G-11 mount.    My current image processing workflow is here.
