Some galaxies in Canes Venatici


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

In a recent trawl of the galaxy groups visible at the moment, I came across this great group of galaxies in Canes Vanatici, including the lovely spirals NGC 5371 and 5350. This image was intended to have 50 subs, but when I checked the end of the imaging session I realised that 30 were no good due to my ongoing guiding problems. Anyway, as the moon's now preventing getting any more subs, I thought I'd post it anyway.

20 x 5 min exposures, Unmodded Canon 450d, 250 f/4.8 Newtonian, NEQ6. Processed in Registax & Photoshop.


EDIT. Noticed that this image is dogged by funny-shaped stars which some of my other images seem to have have. I must check the image train and collimation.
