I managed a couple of hours between clouds last night on the Galaxy Cluster Abell 1367.
By far my most distant objects to date. The 3 Quasars in the crop, Q1, Q2 and Q3 are a mind bending 3.7, 7.6 and 10.3 Billion light years away respectively. I admit unfortunately that Q3 isn’t quite there yet as it needs more data. I need more than 2 hour at this to have a hope of resolving the most distant one. I just hope I can get more data as the weather is very poor at present. A fun target to go for all the same.
Thanks for looking :)
