Description

The Leo Triplet (also known as the M66 Group) is a small group of galaxies about 35 million light-years away in the constellation Leo. This galaxy group consists of the spiral galaxies M65, the M66, and the NGC 3628

Green:36*5(18bin1x1_18bin2x2)

Total exposure time:23h10min

The data taken during 5 nights from 25/3/2011 until 24/4/2011
Some blue and luminance data was forgotten so i try a complete rework
I try also a selective LR deconvolution with CCDStack 2 and Registax wavelet.

''Variable Background Flatten'' with the free ''Fitswork'' Software is highly recommended
