Walking on the Moon

M 109


Recommended Posts

Hello galaxy friends,

To the conclusion of the galaxy season and on the last pusher before astronomical twilight, here is my M 109 out of my garden observatory (I call it "Upper Borg Observatory"). Now I am finished with the Newton for this spring and make - if at all - narrowband with my small Takahashi during the shortest nights of the year. The galaxy in the constellation Big Bear is still quite small despite a 1000 mm focal length. I could scramble about 8 hours in three nights last and this week. Recently I processed a fine M109 from the LT. Here is the thread: https://stargazerslounge.com/topic/293125-m-109-from-liverpool-telescope/

Thank you all for the nice feedback. In case of color gradients, I can sing a song about it. The original image had a lot of it. Even if you cannot see them in the final result, it took me several processing steps to get rid of them.
