Leo Triplet

Leo Triplet

The Leo triplet is a small group of galaxies about 35 million light-years away. The group can be found in the constellation Leo. This group consists of three galaxies M65, M66 and NGC3628. The RGB image was captured in my front yard over several winter nights in April and edited in May. It contains over 8.5 hours of exposure time using 30, 45 and 60 second subs.
