M109 and friends

Managed to get 4 and a half hours worth of imaging time on Phecda (star), M109 and at least 25 other galaxies in Ursa Major last night. ¬†Should turn out to be a very nice image with ultra bright (blue) Phecda contrasting with all the faint fuzzies (galaxies) in the region. ¬†Reasonably good seeing too – we’ve been very lucky with the skies at the beginning of this month – I think it is due to end soon according to the forecasts.
