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.  The total image integration time was just under 16 hours and was taken with my SW Esprit 150 and Trius 814 camera.

The image was processed using four software packages:

CCDstack: calibration, registration, data rejection, deconvolution (L), DDP stretch.

PS: colour enhancement, noise reduction, sharpening, mask generation, image blending. 

Pixinsight: gradient reduction (DBE), photometric colour calibration, sharpening (MLT), HDR Multiscale Processing, dark structure enhance

Neat Image: background noise reduction.
