Location:      NCO "Wilderness" site - Boon Michigan  

Equipment:  4" f6 refractor, G11, Taurus Tracker III, ST4    

Conditions:   6 of 10 Transparency     

Film:             Kodak Supra 400              

Exposure:     45 minutes       

Comments:   I was surprised at how much structure showed up in M95 and M96.  This 600mm focal length is no where near the right one to use for this kind of target yet I could not resist trying it out.  There are 5 galaxies visible in this shot - M95, M96, M105,NGC3384 and NGC3389.
