M65: Leo Triplet 1

Meade 8" LX200 SCT w/Pictor 416XTE and JMI NGF-S
1 light and 1 dark @ 10 minutes, 201XT guided on 80mm guidescope w/2X barlow, -15 degC CCD temp
Feburary 17, 2002

First ever guided picture! 201XT on the 80mm with the barlow gave a 800mm focal length... fairly short for this task. The pixel resolution was 2.7". FWHM values were just over twice what I get unguided. I'm hoping that's the focal length and not just artifacts of the constant shifting the guider does.
