M96 and M95 are two interesting spiral galaxies that are located in the constellation of Leo.

This was shot with my 5-inch refractor and an unmodified Canon T3i (600D).

This camera is really nice because of the tilt and swivel LCD screen on the back.

It has the same sensor and processor as the T2i (550D).

One thing that is missing on the T3i (600D) that the T2i (550D) has is 640×480 Movie Crop Mode, which is really nice for planetary photography.
