Because of its large size I had to digitize my Leo Triplet sketch with a camera instead of a scanner. I thought I had most of the noise cleaned up, but the background was still pretty grungy on some monitors, and some of the brighter stars had digitization effects I had missed the first time around.

Anyway, here's a more cleaned-up version. The difference is more dramatic on the 1200 pixel version, which I encourage you to take a peek at.

Cheers,
-- Jeff.

PS: details on the making of the sketch are in the "Show me your Leo Triplet Sketch" thread.

Jeff,

Nicely done and I love the capture of the galaxies with the details in mottling and shape. The star field is simply amazing too. I can't say enough of this. Thanks for sharing.

Jeff,

An outstanding observation of the Leo Triplet through your instrument. Your reprocessing of your observation has improved it significantly. Thank you for sharing it with us all.
