It's galaxy season, so here are two pictures shot from my backyard in the middle of Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA (Bortle 7-8). Details on imaging setup in my signature.

Really thrilled with the mount so far and have been learning a ton. In addition to the open hardware and documentation, the encouragement and engagement on this forum was a deciding factor in my purchase. 

I'm new to astronomy and astrophotography, having picked up the hobbies in May and at Christmas respectively.

First, a crop of the Leo Triplet from March 5. 60x2-min lights, 20 darks, no flats.

Here's a wide-field in Virgo, framing M58, M59, M60, M89, and M90, along with several other galaxies. I'm a huge fan of the interacting galaxies in the upper right - NGC4567 & NGC4568. 90x2-min lights, 20 darks, 25 flats.

Now that the nights are warming up and I've learned the ropes, it's time to get this setup in the car and enjoy the Bortle 2-3 dark skies from our public lands. Can't wait!

Scope: William Optics ZenithStar 61II w/ UniGuide 32mm
