Blast from the past - Back to the beginning (The Leo triplet)

Blast from the past - Back to the beginning

In 2016 I bought my first telescope that I used a while for visual astronomy. Shortly after, when I discovered astrophotography I upgraded my mount and in the first photo you can see my first astrophotography setup:

Eq6 Pro mount

Skywatcher explorer 200p, f5 newtonian

Astromodified Canon 700D

Astronomik CLS-CCD clip in filter

Baader mpcc coma corrector

Lacerta Mgen standalone autoguider

TS09OAG off axis guider for EOS.

It took a while to learn how to use the equipment properly and only at the beginning of 2017 I started to take my first deep sky photos that I was proud of.

One of the tergets was the Leo triplet shot in Bushey, Hertfordshire between 24 and 31 March 2017

The second photo is my first ever edit of these 3 beautiful galaxies.

This week I went back to the data to see if I can bring an improvement and you can judge that for yourself (3rd photo) but I suggest you go to the full resolution photo on my astrobin account https://www.astrobin.com/3wvz7p/D/ where you will also see the capturing details.
