Spring Nights Under the Stars
The Leo Triplet or "Triplet" in Leo ...
These 3 galaxies comprise of NGC 3628 (right), M65 (bottom left), and M66 (top left). All three are large spiral galaxies and are found in the vicinity of the constellation of Leo the Lion. NGC3628 is also known as the "Hamburger" Galaxy due to its shape, which is probably caused due to tidal forces from the other two galaxies. M65 & M55 are composed of about 200 billion stars each and I am guessing about 300 billion in NGC 3628. The three galaxies are gravitationally bound to each other and are about 35 million light-years from us. I took this image on the night of April 5, 2021, with a total image exposure time of 5 hours. The Leo Triplet is high overhead at midnight in early April. I took this 5 hour image with the Orion EON 130mm Triplet telescope in my backyard.
