The Leo Triplet is a small group of galaxies estimated to be about 35 million light-years distant in the constellation Leo. The M66 galaxy group consists of the spiral galaxies M65, M66, and NGC 3628.

I captured, calibrated, stacked registered and processed this myself. Woohoo!

CCDStack, PixInsight Photoshop.

LRGB 12x600s subs each unguided 900mm FL at F/3.6

Thanks for looking.

Nice work Dave,

Great improvement in processing. May be a bit sharpening on galaxies.
