Stephan's Quintet

Back in the days of film, making an attempt on this famous group of galaxies in Pegasus would have seemed an impossible task under MK's light polluted skies without a bigger scope, hypersensitized film and a good filter set. Though the result isn't very spectacular I'm pleased to have got a useable image which reveals just how much things have changed with the advent of today's equipment and methods. Details: 10" F 4.3 Newtonian. 12x 10 minute exposures @ iso800 with CLS in DSS & CS2.
