Description

This is my first attempt at imaging this rather interesting galaxy. This was the combined efforts from two separate trips to my dark sky site in southeastern Arizona. I used a LRGB approach to processing the data from my DSLR. I am overall very happy with the results and only wished I had a few more hours of image data. I will likely not return to this target with my current imaging setup.

Updated with a revision where I removed a slight green cast around the galalxy and throughout the image. I feel the revision is an improvement over the original image.
