Messier Galaxies....

Back out at the Witte Observatory this morning =)  I wasn't real pleased with my focus.... but couldn't "wrestle" to get it any clearer.  Still getting baseline photos.  Most exposures were only 30 seconds 6400 ISO.

Leo is a VERY BUSY place for galaxies!!!!  Many photos have more than the target galaxy captured - bonus galaxies!

Some of the last photos taken have a bit of "dawn" in them =)

M65 M66 NGC3628 = Leo Triplet ~ 2 minute exposure

M101


M81

Some shots at the end of the session to the East.... Sigh! ;-)

About Me

My photo

I've lived in southeastern Iowa all of my life, now with my wonderful family ~ husband and 3 children. 

I've been teaching science now at the local community college for over 10 year now.  I teach both in the class room and online settings.  I have a passion for ALL PHYSICAL SCIENCE! 

Sometimes I both drift off to sleep and wake up thinking of science.  Science ROCKS ~ but even more so the Creator whose imagination thought up this wonderful universe we call home ROCKS EVEN MORE!  lol
