M83 data captured in March 2018 using an ASI094 color camera. Recently reprocessed after studying books, articles and videos trying to improve my PixInsight skills. Quite a long learning journey, but a challenge which I continue to enjoy.

Many of the magnificent face on spiral galaxies seem to lie in the northern skies, leading me to contemplate some "astrophotography" holidays at some stage. But this is one of my favourite galaxies in the south.

Clear Skies!
