Picture of the Week

Picture of the Week is Greg’s 3 asterism in Leo seen almost dead centre in this image. The image comprises 14 x 12-minute subs taken with the 200mm lenses and M26C OSC CCDs.

I first discovered this asterism whilst scanning across “The Sky 6” planetarium program looking for something interesting. It certainly looked VERY interesting on the monitor. As the object was not in my sky at the time I then downloaded the DSS2 data to have a look at it. Looked EXTREMELY interesting! I then had to wait a few months to get my first Sky90 image of the asterism, and then there was a couple of years wait before getting the 200mm lens image you see above.
