I love the time involved, and to think about what was happening on Earth at the time light left these objects.

Yep, Instead of using your finderscope I've started shooting through your main scope now.

It's actually been really bad this year. I just got a few days clear, but it's back to cloudy again now, as per normal.

Very nice image Kevin. It looks a lot like the Sombrero galaxy.

Those distances show just how massive these galaxies are.

Thanks Greg. I think it's also known as the little Sombrero galaxy by some.

Wow Kevin, when I said last time, keep 'em coming, I didn't expect it so soon. You're pumping out a lot from that 12" Skywatcher and it's producing the goods! Another great shot!

Thanks Bob. Yeah it's a nice little galaxy on it's own. One for those with longer FL scopes.
