Getting a Start on Galaxy Season with Hickson 44. Taken under good seeing conditions that trended towards fog during the final exposures. Hope I clipped the foggy ones!

This is last light under my ownership of my beloved 10" TPO RC. I think I sold it to a good home. My 12" GSO RC Truss is waiting for first light! Just in time for galaxy season!
