Description

Here is a really big pretty galaxy hidden behind a veil of our own galaxies dust. This gives it the yellowish cast. Its almost as big as M101, but not imaged nearly as much. It just barely fit in my field of view. Would have liked to have gotten more data before the rains came, but I am generally happy with the result. Maybe I'll add a second set of data next year.

Total of 49 minutes: 7 x 7 minute images stacked in Fitswork 4, each image composed of 210 x 2 second subs live-stacked in SharpCap 3.2.
