Messier 106 and others

Recommended Posts

In amateur telescopes, Messier 106 is a fine, bright, magnitude 8.4 galaxy. Its mottled, concentrated 5' x 3' central region contains a 1' diameter core with a bright, non-stellar nucleus. The outer halo is much fainter and more diffuse, extending to 19' x 8'.

Great capture and detail, especially with NGC4232 and neighbours - what exposure is this?

Thanks for your comment

 

This photo was taken with 25 expo of 12" each one stacked with the Infinity software.

Infinity works exceptionally well in this kind of objects and his software helps a lot to achieve details easily.
