Description

We had a clear night last night! I managed to get some more data on this nice galaxy before the moon interfered again, the first images were made back in January. Only luminance so far, 9 x 600s. Maybe some colour can be added the coming night ...

Added 3 x 600s each for RGB, and another 9 x 600s L.

Added more RGB, now 18 x 600sL, and 9 x 600s each for RGB

I used PhotometricColourCorrection in PixInsight this time, it should be "true" colour now... At least as unbiased as possible.
