This is an interesting galaxy group centered on M105.  This group is located south of Leo just about centered between alpha-Leo (Regulus) and theta-Leo. The image contains about 12 named objects, as you can see from the annotated version.

The main purpose of this was as a test of a reducer on a new telescope, a Stellarvue SVX90T, yielding an effective focal length of 432mm.

Capture Date: 4/24/2024

Stellarvue SVX90T Apochromatic refractor (native fL 540mm) with 0.8x reducer (to 432mm)
