Description

I made a list of several objects to try and image that I've never imaged before. I chose
Draco's Trio before I went outside. I've seen images of this trio but I didn't realize before
I imaged it just how small these objects are. I couldn't even see the objects in my eye piece.
If you squint your eyes a little you can see the trio of galaxies but very little detail was
resolved. A lot of the stars in the field of view are almost as large as the galaxies. With all of that said please enjoy my first image of Draco's Trio.
