Here is my shot of the Draco Edge On Spiral Galaxy NGC-5907, and Friends,
to the far right side of the galaxy is NGC-5905 a Face on Barred Spiral, and NGC-5908 small edge on Galaxy. There are many other galaxies at least a dozen in the background of this FOV.

I'm amazed at the level of detail I get from this 5" diameter Vixen telescope and my Canon Rebel Xsi 12 megapixel DSLR.

Canon Rebel Xsi & 5" diameter Vixen reflector,
Nebulosity calibrated & stacked, and Adobe PS.
(12) 5 minute subs, at ISO 800 for a 60 minute exposure total.
