It's been kinda slow on Astromart these days, so I thought I would post a quickie image of these three springtime galaxies.

Gorgeous looking M81 ... also a trace of the elusive Holmberg IX!

Did you make that picture yourself?

I really liked it. Thanks for posting.

For 40 minutes of exposure time, that is quite a deep and stunning image with great detail and pin point stars. That RH is sure another one of your gems. Thanks for posting and for creating such amazing optical instruments.
