Trying out a new ZWO ASI 294MCPRO camera on galaxies in a light-polluted suburb. Transparency got pretty bad as the night went on, but clear nights have been rare lately here in central Florida. Gotta take what we can get!

Anyhow, here's the Leo triplet of galaxies hanging out with each other. If we get a better night I might have another go at it.
