Continuing the search for nice, not often imaged, objects I stumbled across NGC 2683 and NGC 5033. They're not super obscure, and there are definitely already some amazing pictures of them out there. But the weather at astrocamp has been improving (after a somewhat horrible year, especially considering it's southern Spain!)

Acquisition details as per usual on Astrobin!

 

Hope you enjoy and thanks for watching laugh.gif

What kind of scope is the Orion 12 cl? Newtonian?

Joel:

 

Very well done on both.  I already saw them on AB.  Even the overwhelming star "next" to NGC 5033 adds interesting, visual interest!  (Thank goodness that the diagonal flare did not intersect the galaxy in the image!)

 

I wasn't as familiar with NGC 5033, so I looked it up.  The magnitude I found (in Stellarium) is 12.03.  Now I'm even more impressed with the detail you got out of it.  The bright star is: HIP 64530 - SAO 63414 - HD 114975, which is actually only magnitude 6.50, but its relative brightness gives you an idea of just how faint that galaxy it.  Well done!

 

Ben

Both are great shots, but the composition of the NGC 5033 is *really* cool.

5033 has a 3D look to it, but both are terrific. waytogo.gif

Thank you all for the kind words! I really appreciate it flowerred.gif

 

The 3D look of 5033 was something I wanted to accomplish for a while, and it seems it worked this time!
