Description

Markarians Chain from 3/5/17

The light frames listed below are referring to how many exposures of the deep sky object were taken and also the length of each exposure which are used for stacking in the program pixinisght, the dark, flat, and bias frames are calibration frames which help to eliminate different types of noise, vignetting, and dust on the sensor. It requires many hours of work to produce just one astrophotography image.

There are a TON of Galaxies in this widefield. Troubles with the second camera prevented me from going deeper on this image as I was certainly after the ifn in the region. I did my best to bring out the colors though it is a but noisy due to the lack of integration. Nonetheless, I hope you enjoy this large FOV!
