The Leo trplet. These are three galaxies in the constelation of Leo. They are approximately 35 million light years distant and are gravitationally bound to each other.

M65 is bottom right, M66 is botom left and NGC3628 is top left.

18x60sec images at ISO 1600. Stacked in Sequator and processed in Photoshop CC.

This particular image isn't as good as I'd like and I will definitely photograph these objects again as soon as a clear night presents itself.
