The Leo Trio

The three galaxies seen here, M65 lower right, M66 lower left, and NGC 3628 are around 35 Million light years away. The bright star at center right is SAO 99552 which lies a relatively close 155 light years from us.

I cropped about 2/3 of the full frame out and enlarged the galaxies to better show them. Such a small target area is better suited to longer focal length instruments than my little 80mm.
