Description

The hidden galaxy is a quite difficult object for me and my f10 setup. This is the result of more than 6 hours of exposure at Ebenwaldhöhe on an excellent night with very good seeing. I have used 2x2 binning and some moderate HDR processing as well as some star reduction (morphological transformation) in PixInsight to enhance this very dim galaxy.
