This is the Coma Cluster, or Abell 1656. There's about 1,000 identified galaxies in this cluster, with a mean distance of 321 million light years from Earth. I absolutely love galaxy clusters! I wasn't sure how much of these distant objects could be resolved with my telescope. It's amazing to see all these far away galaxies from our yards. Check out the annotated version to see which ones I managed to capture!
