Current Photo Gallery of Galaxies (Starting June 2005)

Below are photos that were taken from ClearSkyAZ Observatory.  First light came on June 11th.  I have included test pictures also.  Unless stated, all photos were taken with the RC 12.5" @ f.4.5 (used a .5 Optec focal reducer),  SBIG ST8E camera and SBIG CW8 filter wheel with AstroDon filters.  I will be adding more as I get them and re-processing some of these as time permits.. (My thanks to those that helped with the descriptions'.)
