Description

M64 aka Black Eye galaxy formed by 2 galaxies that collided. the internal rotation is rotating opposite direction to its outer sections. this target was way too small for my 80mm Meade with the .65x reducer bringing the focal length down to 312mm. i wanted to test out the LRGB filters and Back Focus of the camera. I had to crop this so much to zoom in resulting in lack of details and increased noise but didn't come out that bad considering. Only 3 hours of total data.
