Leo Triplet

Leo Triplet (M65 M66 and NGC3628 <the hamburger galaxy>)
30 to 35 million light years away.

Pretty happy with how this came out 7 hours and 10mins worth of exposures over about 4 days of the new moon. Mostly at home (Bortle 5/6) but some from a dark sky location (watts bridge with seqas) (Bortle 2)


Amazing to think of the countless billions of stars , planets and civilizations in this pic.
