NGC7331 and Stephan’s Quintet

Filed under: Observation Journal — Ed @ 4:47 pm

Last night I took almost an hour worth of images of NGC7331 and Stephan’s Quintet to add to the 15 minutes or so of images that I took earlier this month. Compared to the one a few weeks ago, the galaxy NGC7331 (upper right) has much more definition and the 5 interacting galaxies of Stephan’s Quintet are starting to take on more definite shape as well. I’m going to continue getting more imaging time on this as I’m able to eventually have a decent panorama (this image is actuall 3 images stitched together). I also want to try to get some shots with the DSLR of this area as well.
