Description

About 2 weeks ago I've shown you my image of that galaxy group framed very tight using the

APS-C sized DSLR. So I've taken the subs of my first try on that group, back then using a full format DSLR, combined them with tht recent data from 2019 for bigger total exposure time and using the wider field of view of the full frame camera.

Description: To give an expression how faint that tidal wave of NGC 3628, the "Hamburger Galaxy" really is, I've taken the integration file, so before any "magic" of postprocessing happens, stretched it with standard STF, inverted it and made that crop, nothing else done except a bit of contrast raise before saving as .jpg.
