Below is the raw stack of 3 hours with a 4-inch apo and Canon 40D. With averted vision you may just make out a fuzzy patch at the centre. This is the very remote and very faint dwarf galaxy LeoII. Its brightest stars are 20th magnitude so I was pushing my luck. The bright star dead centre is a foreground star and not part of LeoII.

LeoII is mostly invisible Dark Matter - as yet no one can modify a Canon to see that!
