Also from December 11 is this picture of the Leo Trio (M65, M66, NGC 3628). As f/1.9 is quite fast I only could take two minute exposures, anything more would have saturated the chip (5 minutes was already pure white). The optical flaws of this setup are obvious, but nevertheless I like the ability to image a wide field with my small CCD chip.

Taken from the middle of Berlin with an 8" LX200 at f/1.9, MX716 camera, video autoguider, Baader skyglow filter for 70x2 minutes.
