Description

325x60" Luminance with QHY183M and Edge 9.25 + Hyperstar
60x60" RGB OSC with QHY367C and RASA 11

This edge-on galaxy in Draco is interesting in that there are some wild tidal streams that were discovered in the 2000s (see: https://bit.ly/2EuSOXA - lots of cool info and a simulation on these). These are remnants of a satellite galaxy and it shows the orbit around it as it was ripped apart. I set out to try and capture those, and they proved to be REALLY faint, just barely capturing a bit of it. I am probably limited by light pollution for this and could get more from a dark site.
