Description

I decided before I went out side that I was going to image NGC 4564. When I went outside

Virgo was not high enough in the sky so I decided to image M81 and M82 while waiting for

Virgo to get higher in the sky. When I finished imaging M81 and M82 Virgo was high enough

for me to see NGC 4564. The entire night I imaged there were high thin clouds moving

around and a very bright Moon washing out the sky. Both images that I took were

frustrating to process because of the Moon glare and clouds. The data for both images was

crappy for lack of a better description. NGC 4564 is a very small object and could have benefitted

by using a larger aperture scope. Anyway with all of that said please enjoy my most recent image

of NGC 4564.
