I could not find images of NGC 5084 and therefore decided to photograph it out of curiosity and see what it looks like. The edge on galaxy in Virgo near the boarder of Hydra and Corvus glows at magnitude 12 and is accompanied by fainter background galaxies, the two brightest of which are ESO576-31 and ESO576-40 at magnitudes 14 and 14.6 respectively. Here is what 3.8 hours worth of exposures revealed.
