Description

Luminance captured with two different cameras and scopes with http://www.astrobin.com/users/Musse/
Color data captured with a Canon zoom lens and a DSLR and manually distorted to match luminance data.

With the season coming to an end here in the North and sky still mostly clouded, we decided to combine our efforts and produce at least one ok galaxy image. Note, shot from lightpolluted suburban environment and lots of snow reflecting light.
