Galaxy NGC2403 and Surroundings

Photo taken with iTelescope.net T5 in New Mexico, a reflector 0.25m f/3.4 and camera CCD SBIG ST-10XME. It’s the composition of 3 images with exposition of 120 seconds per light frame.

As usual I processed the images with IRIS and Lightroom CC to make it prettier.
To analyze the photo I used Astrometrica for data calibration, than APT to extract an object list and with Aladin, TOPCATA and CDS Portal website I tried to find some interesting objects around the galaxy.
