I like galaxies :-)
This is my second try at NGC5907 but this time with a modern setup and not an my old orange C8 from 1978 ... After a lot of hours spent in front of pixinsight and learning again the basics, I am starting to like better the result ;-)

You can see the improvement in one year, here , the picture of last year : Knife Edge or Splinter Galaxy - NGC 5907 - Celestron 8

2 nights were necessary to get the subs: 29/30 and 30/01 april /may

Red 25 subs@180s -20°C gain zero
Blue 25 subs@180s -20°C gain zero
Green 25 subs@180s -20°C gain zero
Light 47 subs@180s -20°C, gain zero
