Description

Back in March 2017, Barry Wilson and I collaborated on an LRGB image of NGC 2403 using Barry's WO FLT 132/QSI 683 and my Esprit 120/QSI 690. Overall we gathered 90 mins each of RGB and 260 minutes of Lum - NGC 2403 - Collaboration with Barry Wilson

Then in May 2017, NGC 2403 came up on the schedule for the widefield rig at DSW - a Takahashi FSQ 106/QSI 683. 17 hours of data were collected - NGC 2403 from DSW - new data

I thought it might be a wizard wheeze to combine the two sets of data - essentially applying the higher resolution of the UK collaboration with the widefield view from DSW. Registar made this a relatively straightforward task. After that it was some fiddling around in Photoshop.

The data were captured in March and May 2017.
