A few galaxies while waiting...

While waiting for the sky to clear here in Sweden and galaxy season to start I have been fiddling around with data from last season. The first one is M51 data from Ole Alexander Ødegård (aka Xplode) that I added to some wider star field data that I had. I like the feeling of space around the galaxy while there is some rather nice detail that allows a zoom in. Altogether 4 h of data, most of it from Ole's TS 12" Imaging Newtonean (f/4) with a modded Canon 6D. The other is my own Leo Triplet data, and only about 1 hour of it but I think it turned out rather ok (5" ES Apo with a Canon 60Da).

Comments are always welcome of course

Cheers

You are using a dslr right? You got a nice ha signal. 

Great images. Liked the triplet a lot. 

Clear skies. 

Thanks! Yes, these are Canon DSLR images. M51 is taken with a mono modded full frame one (EOS 6D) with LRGB filters so there is less Ha cut off than in a standard DSLR (Ole has since sold it and bought a CCD) and mine is with an EOS 60Da so it is Ha enhanced from the factory.

Nice work Gorann - that is a lot of Ha equivalent data in M51 very impressive for such a short exposure time.  Triplet is nice, a bit more colour might be in there.

Thanks Paddy!

I had an idea of being a bit subtle with the colours but you are of course right and increasing the saturation a bit made it a bit nicer:

Cheers
