A new object for me, Whale and Hockey stick Galaxies


Recommended Posts

Never knew these existed till i saw images here. They are almost as much fun as M81 and M82. Great colours and lovely to place in the same frame.

Last night I managed to get about 80 mins on each channel with the MN190 and QHY + filters.

I soley used PixInsight and CS5 for the calibrations, alignment ans processing. A very steep curve, but slowly getting there hopefully thanks to those in the imaging discussion forum.

So here is the Whale and HockeyStick galaxies.

Image details

Scope : Skywatcher MN190 + QHY9 + 2 inch filters

Guide : Skywatcher ED80 / QHY5 , EQ6 mount and PHD

Software : PixInsight and CS5
