This deep galaxy field was captured in February 2012 at Fremont Peak, CA using my refractor telescope. Although the Coma Galaxy Cluster is a fairly popular target, I was still amazed just how deep this galaxy field was, and how much the little refractor revealed.
Using TheSkyX Pro software to aid the location of these galaxies, I sourced some distant galaxies that must reside far outside the main Coma Cluster. According to their redshift and radial velocity, I found some more than a billion light years away! There are several more in the image, but I positively identified at least 2.
