A LRGB image of M106 with an Ha blend into the red channel.

Along with the main galaxy (M106) and NGC4248 (bottom right), quite a few very distant galaxies can also be seen in the background.  M106 is quite bright in Ha, so I decided to blend 6.5 hours into the red channel to obtain a more structural detail.

The total image integration time was just under 16 hours and was taken with my Esprit 150.

Love the details in center and your choice of colors. I am sorry to say but my opinion is as I have been learned in this hobby is better to lie than telling what you really thinks.

I hope you respects me after saying that your picture has great potentinal, I cant create it myself. But the fact is that the image is fuzzy all over but the center.

Maybe some changes in the processing could fix it ? Else kill me.

Thanks for the comment Ceph. I'll reinspect the numerous background fuzzies for excessive fuzzyness ! :happy8:
