M65, M66, NGC3628 - Leo Trio - 110207 crop

The Leo Trio is a small group of galaxies (M65, M66, and NGC 3628) about 35 million light-years away in the constellation of Leo.

This stack of 15 ten-minute exposures were taken on my Canon 450D at 1600 ISO. The images were taken through my ED-100, stacked in DSS, and processed and cropped in Photoshop.
