M106 LRGB - An Image at Last

Recommended Posts

Last night ( 7th March) was clear enough to attempt some imaging though the clouds did roll in after midnight. Rather a lot of haze did not help matters so I chose M106 which was fairly high up and in the opposite direction to the Moon.

Scope - 8" RC working a F5.6

Camera - Atik 460EX

Mount - EQ8

7 X 8mins for each filter - Red, Green, Blue and Luminance

Very nice, not seen that much detail in the core before.

Thanks for the positive comments. Getting the RC scope collimated properly seems to have improved my images.
