You aren't going to believe this - - - -!
Here is an image of the Leo galaxy triplet, and here is the punch-line :-
It was taken with an 80mm f/5 refractor (+focal reducer) with the PD camera from the bedroom window-sill through the double glazing! I will try it outside when I have the chance.
The refractor is on a driven table-top EQ1 mount - that I haven't yet got quite right.
I had 2 main ambitions some time ago. One was to see the spiral arms of M51, and the other to see the Leo Triplet. I normally have extreme difficulty even seeing NGC3628 (the upper fuzzy) visually at all with my 8" SCT.
