NGC 1387 and friends (Really Great Barred Spiral Galaxy is most prominent

Hi,

Not a particularly good time for imaging. Learnt that until I get DSLR cooling I will no longer use Darks.

Anyway and simple point at NGC 1387 and shoot 100 * 120secs and see what comes out. Counted via annotations a total of 17 Galaxies in the image. It was also a very warm night during imaging so not the best, very motley image if I stretch it any further.

Annotation here: https://telescopius.com/pictures/vie...y/by-wimake_ii

Cheers

That's not cool, that's amazing. Nothing better than a field full of galaxies. Thanks for sharing!

Amazing shot Malcolm. I love wide fields, especially when they're full of galaxies.

I don't understand; there is less need for darks when using a cooled DSLR.

Yes, it is my new way of targeting during these times when little nebulosity is around.

I am hoping for more narrow fields eventually, but there is still a bit of widefield out there to capture.

Hmmmm. We must be looking at different skies. There’s so much nebulosity out there right now! One of the best times of year
