Messier 106 and the faint fuzzies

On one of three clear nights in February, I managed to capture this amazing image:

Messier 106 27/02/22

Just three hours of RGB data has captured a host of bright and many faint galaxies. Some of the faintest detected are very red indicating a huge distance away from us. PGC2299122 and PGC2299019 are estimated to be 3.8 Billion light years away!
