Galaxies up Next

  Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day is Incredible.  It's a photo of 2/3 of a galaxy cluster known as the Leo Trio in the constellation of the same name.  It just boggles my mind that this stuff is out there in the night sky for us to see.

  With the Transit of Venus over and done with for my lifetime, it's about time I get my tracking mount up and running for extended deep sky imaging.  Plus, with an 8" telescope on my horizon, it will be even more fun to start going after these faint jewels of the night.
