Lovely trio of galaxies that Kevin, look like three cucumbers...looking for a cat to startle I prefer the colour variation though, rather than if they were all green

Nice job

Mike

Looks great Kevin,
3.6 hours wasn't long enough to pick
up the tidal streams but I think I see a hint of them there:

Thanks Mike. Cucumbers give me wind anyway. I prefer galaxies.

Wow, I hadn't seen that one before Allan. The weather has been terrible this season so I am cramming to get anything these days. And the 183 isn't that sensitive. I don't think I could ever get the tidal streams here on a northern object. I can't get the hours.

Another cool galaxy shot. Great details in the central one dust lanes. Looks very 3D.

Thanks Marc and Mark.

Apparently the center galaxy NGC4216 has an absolute magnitude brighter than the Andromeda galaxy.

That's a great image Kevin. The star shapes are a little odd - just a minor distraction from an otherwise beautiful shot though.

Thanks Marc. This was mostly unguided 30 sec subs. I'm having drama with my old laptop and it's USB ports. Sometimes the guide camera works, sometimes not. And I have a bad habit of keeping elongated star subs.
