Description

This was a challenging target for me. It's quite small, and despite having a fairly bright surface it seems the details need a lot of integration to really be brought out.

NGC4051 is estimated to be about 45 million Light years away. That is about 20 times more distant than Andromeda!

Nothing fancy with the processing. Just a combine, color calibration, saturation and a little TGVDenoise. It has been re-sampled to about 0.65"/px resolution.

C&C Welcome.
