6/2/05 NGC 5907 Spiral Galaxy in Draco

This is my first image taken while using my new RoboFocus precision focuser. We had almost a month of cloudy skies and I managed to capture bits and pieces over the course of the 3 nights in early June. I usually stick to one subject per night, but on June 4th after I took the blue for this galaxy I switched to make an attempt at M13. During processing I realized I could have used a lot more color data on this one and probably should have left M13 for another time. However, overall I'm happy with this attempt and feel confident that the new focuser has made a significant difference in quality.
