Default ASTRO: NGC 3995

Again I had guiding problems in declination for this shot of a rather weird
group af galaxies around NGC 3995 in the southern parts of Ursa Major. I'll
probably change the declination motor to see if that helps.

Taken from the middle of Berlin with a 10" Meade ARC at f/6.3 on a G11
mount, SXV-H9 camera, 35x5 minutes.

The picture can also be found at

That certainly is a weird group. And my list just got one longer!

I wouldn't have noticed the declination problem if you hadn't mentioned
it. Pretty minor. Good luck on tracking the source.

Correct domain name is arvig and it is net not com. Prefix is correct.
Third character is a zero rather than a capital "Oh".

guiding problems or not, it is a cool image of some very interesting looking
galaxies

Nice image Stefan. That galaxy looks like it is just getting ripped to
shreds...like it wants to spiral around in one direstion and something is
pulling it in another. Any color data planned in the future ??? There
might be some interesting colors in this one.

P.S. Your star images are very tight with this 10" telescope.

Thanks Joe. I might be tempted to do some "quick" colour frames as it would
be interesting to see which colour those knots have. I won't spend too much
time on the colour frames though because the luminance is not good enough
with the elongated stars in declination...

Wild looking galaxies Stefan, nice work!

Stefan,

Wow!

That galaxy cluster is a great place to image, but I wouldn't want to
live there!
