NGC 4567 and NGC 4568 (nicknamed the Siamese Twins or the Butterfly Galaxies) are a set of spiral galaxies about 60 million light-years away in Virgo. They were both discovered by William Herschel in 1784. They are in the process of colliding and merging with each other. Taken with reasonable guiding but poor seeing conditions using a Skywatcher clear sky filter. For more details the astrobin link is: http://www.astrobin.com/248908/
I and Wim are doing our best to fill up this forum with what we find to process on the Liverpool Telescope site. But what else could we do up here in Sweden where the night is twilight for several months? Here is today's contribution from me: Two colliding galaxies. Even if this is only 20 subs and 30 min (!) of data I think it stands its ground with the help of 2 m of aperture. Subs used and filters: 5 x 90 s of sdss-r (red channel) 5 x 90 s of Bessell V (green channel) 10 x 90 s of Bessell B + sdss-g (blue channel)
