Back to galaxies

After the the Cone I went looking for another target. With the winter nebulae now moving out of my imaging sky I am back once more to the realms of the springtime galaxies so I homed in on NGC 2903 which is a barred spiral in Leo at a distance of 30 million miles. The transparency was deteriorating as I took the subs but I managed to get 8 that were usable. I was hoping to get a bit more of the faint outer arms. Details: 10" f4.3 Newt. 8x 10 minute exposures @ iso1600 with CLS in DSS, CS2 & XAT.
