Description

Quick work on Leo's Triplet from my backyard in heavy light pollution. Only 82mins (41x 120s) 1600ISO without autoguiding with Astronomik CLS-CCD Clip-on filter on a no moon night.
I think I'm pretty much at the limit of my setup on this one. The targets are small and I don't have a fancy expansive camera. It could use (and will get at some point) more exposure time and rework. As a matter of fact, it was a plan for tonight after work but my shift was just a pain in the ass and the temperature is cold as frozen hell, so nooooo.........
