You do need some decent aperture and faster optics to pick up these dim galaxies

I definitely couldn’t get the same result out of my smaller 6” f6 newt
I'm using a 5" refractor @ F7.5 Martin, I guess the aperture makes all the difference on these targets.
F7.5 is not exactly fast either, thanks for raising that point. I have an 8" SCT , at F10 it's slower again but might be worth a shot on DSO's like this.
