M64 - Blackeye Galaxy


Recommended Posts

Seems to be popular at the moment, but since I had clear skies and had got my scope set up on the balcony for the first time at my new apartment, I thought I'd give it a go.

This is 4 hours of LRGB taken over two nights earlier this week, unguided since my new guide cam hasn't arrived yet.

I'm quite pleased with the core detail, although I've only done a rough collimation on the scope after the move so far - it really needs some fine tuning.

Hope you like it - click the image for details and a larger view.

Cheers,

John

John, that is not only a great image, I especially like the details you have supplied with it. Also the slide show of your other work is very pleasing.

Thanks for your effort in presenting them.

Ron. :angry:

That is a really nice image with great detail in the core - I know how hard it is to get at that core detail - the seeing here this week has made it very difficult to get any clarity in my attempts at the object. Lovely to see it so nicely presented.

Thanks all.

Now I'm in my new apartment this is the first time I've had a clear view of the zenith, so I'm reveling in the steady air up there :angry:
