A windy NGC 5965

The next imaging opportunity was a bit short-lived when cloud moved in. I did manage to obtain 10 subs first though and for half of them the transparency was exceptionally good due to the windy conditions (fortunately the direction wasn't affecting the scope very much). I'm still finding fresh galaxies to target and NGC 5965 is a nice edge-on galaxy in Draco. To its left is NGC 5963 which has very irregular arms barely detectable on my image. The other fainter galaxies are NGC 5971 (at top) and NGC 5969 (centre left). Details: 10" f4.3 Newt. 10x 10minute exposures @ iso1600 with CLS in DSS, FIV, CS2 & XAT.
