The NGC 3190 Cluster 15/03/23

Recommended Posts

I was out in the early hours of yesterday during particularly transparent skies,with virtually no wind.

Using my Nikon D3200 DSLR attached at prime focus on my driven 400P Dob I captured what the Sky Atlas 2000 Companion describes as the NGC 3190 Galaxy group. Just a couple of degrees above Algieba this group is easy to find. From the top is the spherical NGC 3193,then NGC 3190 itself with its dust lane and next to it on the right  NGC 3187 which is interacting with NGC 3190. Below NGC 3185  is a face on spiral. All four are visible visually at the eyepiece but not the dust lane even with the 16".At least not to me)!

The exposure was 20 sec at 1600ISO and some tweaking using Faststone.
