Leo Trio

Image labeled with MaximDL planetarium
A grop from the center of the image.
Not a bad resolution for a 200mm lens.
I shot this one 23.03 for optical configuration calibration purposes.
The 200mm les is not a right tool for tiny glaxies, this is a sharp one though.
Image turned to be kind of nice, so I post it here.
A Blink animation to show just Galxies.
(Klick the image to see it.)
If could see this area from outside of our home Galaxy, it'll looks like a Starless one.
All the faint dots in the supressed image, are the other Galaxies!
Details; -Camera, QHY9 - Optics, Canon EF 200mm f1.8 @ 1.8 - Guiding, QHY5 and PHD-guiding - Platform, LX200 GPS 12" - Exposures, 17x150s with IDAS-LP filter, Darks, Flats and Bias frames calibrated.
