My attempts at astro imaging

Leo Triplet

This is the Leo Triplet – A collection of 3 galaxies in the, wait for it……. Leo Constellation!  These are around 35 Million light years distanct from us, so the light that my little telescope gathered had been travelling accross space, interacting with nothing but the odd exotic particle or piece of dust since the first apes started appearing on planet Earth!

This image is 17 X 10 min subs, with the usual setup – Altair Astro F4 Newt/QHY8, processing done in Pixinsight (Atrois Wavelets for the galaxy core processing)
