Description

Data from several months ago taken at home observatory in suburban Atlanta. This is my first test of the focal extender for the FSQ-106. Although it does increase the "reach" of the FSQ there's no substitute for aperture...some else my long list of things I 'desperately need' to survive or else all is lost and I can never do anything ever again in imaging....

M106 and surrounding galaxies...pretty cool as I didn't know the field very well and didn't expect NGC 4217, NGC 4248 and all the others.
