NGC 5371

What started as a windy evening gave the promise of some decent transparency so I expected some problems from the telescope being buffeted by sudden gusts. Fortunately, by the time I started imaging, it had abated considerably and I was able to get an untroubled run of subs in very clear conditions. NGC 5371 is in Canes Venatici and part of the Big Lick Galaxy Group. I was a bit disappointed not to get a bit more detail in the processing of this nice face-on target so I might try again some time. Details: 10" f4.3 Newt. 17x 10minute exposures @ iso1600 with CLS in DSS, FIV, CS2 & XAT.
