Hi Bernard, Another excellent image; this time of Arp 271. I enjoy comparing your shots to Arp's work with the 200-inch back in the 50s-60s. Yours are of amazing quality! http://ned.ipac.caltech.edu/level5/Arp/Arp_contents.html Clear skies and good observing, Bob Gent PS: All the photos on this observer's list are great. Thanks to everyone, even when I don't post. -----Original Message----- From: az-observing-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:az-observing-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Bernard Miller Sent: Wednesday, May 30, 2012 10:52 PM To: az-observing@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [AZ-Observing] NGC 5427 Hi, If you ever saw the movie "A Bridge Too Far", I think this picture reminds me of that title and is a galaxy too far. I really just don't have the aperture to do this one justice, but I am a sucker for colliding galaxies. Anyway, I hope you enjoy. Comments and suggestions welcomed. http://www.azstarman.net/NGC5427.htm Bernard -- See message header for info on list archives or unsubscribing, and please send personal replies to the author, not the list.
