Leo Triplet Updated Image


Recommended Posts

Since I posted this 3 weeks ago I have had the chance to add another 3 hours of LRGB, to the image.

I also collected 2 hours of Ha at 3nm, I must admit that it did not add much, only two small areas in M66, but the Ha data created some weird artifacts with the stars, so I am still working on how to add it in.


I am curious about the two very small faint galaxies above NGC 3628, I cannot find any info about them, if anyone knows I would love to hear


All criticism welcome
