The Lion

[Back to the Constellation Index]

This image shows Leo in the center of the frame with Coma Berenices at left. Saturn was also in Leo when this picture was taken by Chris Newsome on the 26th March 2009. He took it while at the Basingstoke Astronomical Society to which he gave a presentation that evening. Chris used a Canon 400D camera at 400 ASA and a combination of two 30 second exposures to produce the image. He says that it was dark enough not to need a light pollution filter.
