DescriptionM82 M81 were the main targets. These are about 12 million light years from and they are slowly pulling on each other. I shot this on 2/24/12 from Adamsville, TX at the Bucksnort Observatory. Air was clean and temps were in the low 30's. Many thanks for the invitation. 24X600sec ISO 1600 Darks, Flats, Bias

DescriptionHere is a picture of NGC 4725. This is a barreled spiral galaxy about 40 million light years away in the constellation of Coma Berenices. Also visible in the image are NGC 4712 to the right and NGC 4747 in the upper left. NGC 4712 is about 207 million light years away. The faint "tails" you see on NGC 4747 are cause by tidal interactions with NGC 4725.
