I agree

Someone needs to post a decent picture of these galaxies

About one year ago I tried to imagine NGC 5963 and NGC 5965 in Draco from my crappy Bortle 6 sky (when I'm lucky). Here's the result: 

This subject won an Apod 7 years ago: https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap120216.html

And if you search these galaxies here in AB there are just eight pictures… Eight!!! So you guys with the Darkest Skies, The Sturdiest Mounts and the Beastiest Scopes why don't you do something about it? Then, if you win the IOTD you offer me a drink.

Anyway sorry for my tone, I am joking… and I am not. smile

Clear Skies,

Andrea

Not a challenge at all! It is truly a target worth many more pictures than just 8. There's an edge on galaxy, a spiral galaxy with a beautiful core and color and there's another galaxy NGC 5971 with a tidal stream (not visible in my picture). I would like to see some pictures from a dark site.

I like it! …. And I'm sorry to disappoint you but I think Gary Imm  made one before you smile Anyway they're are both very nice. I think i'll review mine and make the spiral look more natural without pushing levels too much.
