Here are a couple of images from last night. First up is face-on spiral galaxy NGC3344, possibly the most interesting object in the constellation of Leo Minor. William Optics 102GT with Atik One, 6 x 10min luminance exposures before the moon came up, and 6 x 5 min R, G and B binned 2×2.
Then there’s a quick look at M106 in Ursa Major. This was 6 x 5 min R, G and B binned 2×2 after the moon had risen, and is a bit noisy, but the area would be worth revisiting when the sky’s a bit darker, as the annotated image shows.
