Techno Stuff: 3/20/07 ATK-16hr, Megrez 80mm APO at F/6 mounted on LX90 8" SCT, Red filter and IR filter, 6x600secs, manually guided from LX90, no darks, Binning 2x2, Photoshop CS2, PixInsight, Neat Image

Notes:This is the often imaged 'Trio in Leo' of three Galaxies located in the Leo Constellation. The framing isn't the best but it was a balance of trying to remain in as close as possible and finding a suitable guide star. The brightest galaxy, NGC3628 ((mag 9.5) is at bottom.
