A trio of galaxies including the brighter galaxies (from left to right) NGC5985, NGC5982 and NGC5981, in Draco. Spread across the background you can also see dozens of fainter galaxies.

The exposures were calibrated, defect-corrected and stacked using AIP4WIN. This image has been resampled down from its original size of 1380x1035.
