NGC 6015

A few cloudy evenings intervened before the next imaging opportunity. My guiding issues look to have arisen from the clutch on the RA axis beginning to slip so hopefully a bit of tightening will remedy things. As we approach the solstice it is now getting quite late before dark enough subs can be acquired so I don't start imaging much before 11.30pm at present. I keep finding more galaxies as the spring sky disappears and this time I attempted NGC 6015 which lies in Draco at mag.11.2. The transparency was good throughout the session. Details: 10" f4.3 Newt. 12x 10minute exposures @ iso1600 with CLS in DSS, FIV, CS2 & XAT.
