NGC 891

I keep pushing my mostly stock C8i SE. A few nights ago I actually managed to get decent tracking for over 3 hours. I was able to salvage ~170 x 60s subs for a not so bad shot.

Hope you like my humble attempt, I was pretty impressed as I think galaxies are on the harder side to capture, unguided on an unmodded DSLR?!

I think I'm the kind of person who doesn't like strong opinions.  It doesn't matter if I agree with your opinion or not, it's not factual, it never will be 100% factual and I don't care for it.  That's probably why I hate politics.

I've always loved facts, provable facts of nature and things concerning science.  

Over time, I found that most facts are mostly reference and it was the creation of and discovery of new things that intrigued me.

"A good friend once told me you are our memory
without them we equal nothing
And all I can see is the place I wanna be
Suddenly my life was so free
Leaves at my feet, blown to the ground
their echoes are reaching my ears
Nights coming fast, suns going down" - A7x
