Draco Triplet with Atik Infinity mono & 8" SCT
« on: March 25, 2020, 09:35:11 pm »
 Hi all,

Not as well-known as the Leo triplet, NGC 5981, 5982 and 5985, collectively known as the Draco triplet are a fine group of galaxies high in Draco.
Unlike the Leo triplet however these galaxies are probably not related and are at different distances so the triplet is purely a line of sight effect.

Stack of 50 frames with 15 seconds per exposure.
Atik Infinity monochrome camera with Meade LX 200 8" SCT, 15 seconds per exposure @ f/6 , 2x binning.
 Image processing with StarTools.
Date 22/03/2020 @ 23:05 MEZ, Bortle 8 sky.
