This is Messier 96, Messier 105, and some friends. Let the run go fully automatic (just plugged in Messier 95's coordinates and let it run). I don't have a rotator yet but I wish I had one as poor Messier 95 was cut off. Poor Messier 95, think I should put a cloud coming out from him saying "Please don't leave me out!". :-)
