That's a stunning shot you got there. Really love the smoothness and the nice and tiny stars. A picture to spend some time on looking for those galaxies in deep space. Any idea how far the most distance one is? Ill bet it's more then 1million Lightyears

Hi Rutger!
Some of those in the crop shown galaxies are between 215 - 230 million lightyears away.

That's just mind blowing
