Apologies for another image of the Leo triplet but it's my first attempt at this target and for what's effectively just a 70mm F6 refractor, I'm quite please with the result.  Captured Tuesday evening

Good colours and detail Clive 👍

Nice image, I always like looking at images of the Leo triplet.

Long-exposure deep sky photography is not something I do myself but I like these sorts of photos very much. I was fortunate to see M65 and M66 through an 8" telescope at a star party years ago and the memory never fades.


Don't apologise for choosing this target. I'm more than happy to see them again and this is one of the better shots I've seen of them.
