Shooting for the stars
Leo Triplet is a small group of galaxies residing in the constellation of Leo and is approximately 35 million Light-years from Earth.
This photograph was taken from my balcony in Vedbæk, Denmark, over three nights in early April 2021 using a Canon camera with a 2x extender on a 650mm reflector telescope (later it was drizzled x2).
It’s a final photograph consists of 62 x 2 minutes exposures with a IR/UV-cut filter + 70 x 3 minutes exposures with a Ha/OIII filter.
This version of the photograph is resized for the web but the original image is 12368×7520 pixels ✨
