This is a spring galaxy I captured this past weekend. It is known as M66, and is a member of the Leo Triplet of galaxies (I have a few images in other albums of the trio). This image is 55 minutes of 5 minute exposures captured with a QSI 583C @ -20*C through a Meade 14" SCT at a focal length of 3800mm guided on a Paramount ME. We are still ironing out guiding issues but the result is still quite pleasant. The Galaxy itself is a barred spiral, and this image highlights the dust lanes prominent in each arm.
