Messier 106

Did not realize there were other galaxies in view until after the photo was processed. 42 one-minute frames, 1600 ASA. Not as many frames as I had planned, as the equatorial mount was extended in that direction as far as it would go. To keep going would require slewing completely around, then the mirror would have to be collimated again, and the camera focused and adjusted to recreate the same orientation as seen in the picture above.

I decided to move on to another object.
