Description

A M61 LRGB Galaxy image with visible SN 2020jfo supernova, taken with 16" SCT F6.2 FL app. 2.5 m, ZWO asi1600MM camera and 36mm Baader LRGB filters. Total expo. time: LUM=14x180sec+25x60sec. RGB in total=24x60sec.
Blended into the BG total exposures 45x120sec, taken with a WO FLT-110 F7 refractor, Atik Horizon mono camera, and a IDAS LPS P2 2" filter.

My home build observatory is placed in my front yard/in the "red light" pollution zone, have a look here,
