Description

Well I couldn't get DSS to stack with any calibration images. It kept saying Vector t too long (I tried with all calibration frames, I tried with just blacks, just flats, always the same) . So this is 3 hours without all the extra stuff. It was 6 hours, but I kept the best 50%

I find this galaxy very interesting. It is definitely weird, and it is relatively close yet so small and faint.

KiwiAstro says to use PixInsight to stack, and I should, and I will, but damnit, brain so tired.

Not sure why the stars are blue on top and red on bottom. Probably focus not being exact. Oh well it is better than the photo you have taken of it

Clear Skies.
