Description

Monday night it finally cleared and 2am-5 am on Tuesday morning I had my two Esprits directed at these two Messier galaxies. I collected the RGB with the ASI071MC (OSC) sitting on the Esprit 150 (38 x 5 min at gain 200 offset 30) and the Lum with the ASI1600MM (89 x 2 min at gain 139 offset 50) sitting on the Esprit 100. Ideally I should have collected the Lum with the larger scope but both galaxies would not have fit on the smaller chip of the ASI1600.

M95 and M96, together with PGC32119 (at the bottom), are rather obvious but a plate sloving and annotation in PI reveal 30 galaxies in this image (see version H)
