The local group galaxy IC1613. Its about 15 arc mins across and mag 9.9 I think. Certainly its presence was obvious on a single frame, so pretty easy to image. It really needed about 90minutes worth of images. This was way too short - even with the camera running at -35C and the noise pretty low. A flat would have helped too. Had to crop the frame.
