M48 - Open Cluster in Hydra


Recommended Posts

Messier 48 - an open star cluster in Hydra.  According to the Interweb the cluster is 1,500 light years away and is 300 million years old. 

This is 16 x 600 seconds each (so 10 hours and 40 minutes total) of LRGB shot through the Takahashi FSQ 106 and QSI 683 rig at Deep Sky West.  Once the RGB image was assembled, I extracted Luminance and added this to the 'regular' Luminance for a 'Super Luminance'.
