When it comes to atoms, language can be used only as in poetry.
The poet, too, is not nearly so concerned with describing facts
as with creating images.

— Niels Bohr

Galaxies galore

Galaxies galore

It was clear last night. Overhead was Hercules. I was going to image M13.  Nearby the atlas showed NGC6166. I wanted to know what it looked like, so I took a 60 second exposure. I then went for an hour (5min x 12) I realized there were more galaxies in this photo. So I took the task to identify as many as I reasonably could. The results are in the next post: NGC6166 neighborhood.
