Description

This is a collaboration with the great Barry Wilson. Barry collected RGB data on his WO FLT 132 and QSI 683, whilst I collected Lum through my Esprit 120 and QSI 690. We had grandiose plans as to the amount of data we were going to collect, but, the UK weather had other ideas. So this is 1 hour 30 mins each of RGB and 4 hours 20 mins of Lum. If we ever get a gap in the clouds I may add to this - we had hopes for Ha!

Description: Following my processing of the NGC 2403 from the Tak 106/ QSI 683 rig in NM - http://astrob.in/298601/0/]NGC 2403 from DSW - new data - I thought I'd revisit the collaboration I did with Barry Wilson earlier this year. I have used Barry's orientation which does seem much more 'comfortable' to look at. The galaxy is a bit brighter, and I seemed to be able to get a better result with deconvolution this time. Barry's version is at http://www.astrobin.com/286551/B/?nc=user
