Walking on the Moon

Whale and Pup


Recommended Posts

This is very popular spring target, and I was also tempted to image it again :) NGC4631 Whale galaxy is actually barred spiral galaxy, but I have no idea how scientists have figured it out... 

I collected frames for this picture over few nights in April 2018 in my backyard suburban roll-off shed. Telescope was Meade ACF 10" with CCDT67 telecompressor, QHY163M camera and EQ6 mount. It is about 5 hours of total exposure with 3 minute subs. Image is full frame resized down to FHD resolution.
