While waiting for clear skies, I have taken on two more Kodak glass plates from the Palomar Observatory Sky Survey. When I looked at the data in the fits files, I found that the red filtered exposure (90 min) was from exactly 42 years ago (1975.03.01), but the date is just a coincidence (I was looking for something cool to process). The blue plate was taken 16 years later (50 min). I made a synthetic green channel from a 50:50 mix of them and processed it in PS CS5. This is a galaxy, although it does not really look like one. You find it in the constellation of Centaurus in southern sky (Dec -43) so nothing I could image from here, but apparently it is doable on Mt Palomar in March. PS. In this case I noticed that if you click on the image it looks much better
