Swindon, Wiltshire. UK

Skywatcher NEQ6 pro mount & Equinox 80mm refractor, Atik 383L+ camera, motorised filter wheel and Astronomik Ha LRGB filter set.

Having a go at these galaxies before Cygnus rises.

Moved m81 and m82 slightly over so I could get the fainter NGC 3077 galaxy into view.

4.5 hours of LRGB data collected over three nights.

Poor weather has returned so tonight could be the only good night for a while.
