I grabbed the photons last night (23rd) and today Noel Carboni processed the data into this fine image.

Image

Three and a half hours total exposure time using 10-minute subs. M95, M96, M105 and a ton of other galaxies in Leo. Tonight I am (at this very moment) imaging the Leo Trio region - wide field :D

Thanks guys,
Glad you like it. If it stops raining and the skies clear I might be able to get some more.
Greg

Thank you Evan - I really like barred spirals too - there's a whole bunch in a big Virgo/Coma mosaic I'm putting together which covers a huge area of sky in galaxy central.
