Wayne, I think there was an image posted a few days back here that showed the 
galaxies.  I didnt think they would be visual however.  Good catch!  Now back 
to clouds.....

It would seem that Saturn is approaching the same type of superposition in a
few days, but the moon may interfere with that juxtaposition. Very nice shot,
Chris. 
I have actually seen the Gegenschein below Leo in my observations from my back
yard this past week. It interferes with my view of the galaxies!!
Did anyone notice several NGC galaxies in Comet Lulin's tail a couple days
ago? I was tracing the tail for a few degrees with my 13-inch and caught sight
them.  

Clear skies,
