Data source: Backyard


Using the kit co-owned by myself, Tom O'Donoghue and Steve and Lis Milne I captured this data with guest Billy Harris, who did all the hard work because I was ill! Dual TEC140, Atik 460 for lum, Moravian 8300 for colour. Imaged in one night with 18x15 mins Lum, 9x15 red, 6x15 green and blue. (No particular reason for this, we just lost some subs to late cloud.)
It is, alas, rather small but a nice galaxy none the less.
