CCD image of the elliptical galaxy M105 of the M96 or Leo I group by the University of Arizona Astronomy Club.
Michael Purcell's image of M105, taken on December 12, 1993 at 4:05 with his Meade 10-inch f/6.3 SC Telescope and a ST6 CCD camera, exposed 45 times @ 20 seconds.
The rightmost galaxy in this image is M105. This elliptical galaxy has the added attraction of having two other bright galaxies in the same field of view. NGC 3389 is the small edge-on spiral at the left, while NGC 3384 is in the center.
