PREVIEW: NGC 3953 --- a close look

I took the "giant" RC scope out back for the second time --- another 3hr setup with the RC and the AP, but fun in a weird way, haha.
I went out on Valentine's Eve 🥰 ...and this was one of a couple of targets I got that night.

This is just a preview.

The seeing conditions were not great, but I still had fun to finally get out again! AND...this target is one that is near and dear to my heart:
NGC 3953 @ 55 million light years away ❤️
This is LUM only, and I collected all LRGB so will process as I go 🙂
