This is an LRGB image. Starting at lower right side is M95 - to
the left some "distance" and near horizontal center is M96 -
moving about the same "distance" above and slightly left of M96
is a galaxy trio, with large galaxy M105 to the right side of this group -
in the same group of three and moving counter-clockwise is NGC 3384 and
finally smaller NGC 3389. In this image, there are actually at least 7
galaxies, but they are smaller in appearance. I also picked up 3 different
asteroids during this imaging session, which are edited out (they normally
appear as small dashes as the camera integrates and they move slowly
through the field of view). More info on this galaxy group, here.
