Description

NGC 1532, a nice edge-on spiral galaxy in the southern constellation of Fornax. LRGB imaging is not my forte, but now and then I have success. It is the same as anything - practice often and it would be easier.

This data was taken back in 2013 and I stumbled upon it again just now (almost a year later in August 2014) sitting in a directory unprocessed. As is often the problem with astrophotography - significant time is required to process the data once captured.
