This is a nice little group which, rather surprisingly, is not often imaged. While the galaxies are not big, they can still reveal some detail.

That's a really nice group, Geoff.  Thanks for sharing.  I wouldn't have thought an AP900 would hold a CDK 12, but it obviously can.  Great work.

Thanks for all the positive comments. Really appreciate them.

Thanks Kevin. The AP900 is ok with the CDK12, but with the addition of a heavy FLI Proline and filter wheel, I think it’s close to its limits. At one time I was looking to mount a Televue 101is side-by-side with it but AP advised against it.
