    RGB of 6 x 300 each

    all binned 2 x 2

  2. I imaged this before Alan with a shorter FL as part of Markarian’s chain they looked interesting so I had a go with my 11” scope FL of 1764 mm with focal reducer in line I had to crop this image to use some Luminance from last year as the cameras were not well orientated I liked my image better from this year but it Was noisier with only having 15 x300 of Luminance.


  3. Imaged over two nights 29-04-19 / 19-03-20 still a bit noisy had to crop the image as last years camera orientation not a good match.

    all binned 2 x 2

    Celestron 11" scope at F 6.3

  4. Thanks Wim I have thought about imaging this dwarf galaxy for years but it didn’t look that good when I looked at the images on the Web but I was surprised at the detail in it when I imaged it. I am sure you it will be worth you while to give it a go.
