M100 and 32 neighbors

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have used the Esprit 150 to hunt galaxies again, now between clouds over two recent nights. This time aiming at M100 and 32 neighboring galaxies, being inspired by the recent refractor images posted by @ollypenrice and @Tom OD. I spent quite some time on finding a framing that would include as many galaxies as possible. Not sure it was the estetically most pleasing framing as it left the centre rather empty, but why not. I was slightly surprised by how small M100 is. Smaller than some NGC galaxies that I have recently imaged.

Camera was ASI071 (an APS-C sized OSC) set at gain 200, offset 30, -15°C. Totally 85 x 5 min (so just over 7 hours) stacked in PI and processed in PS. Mount: Mesu 200.

I also post an annotaded version made in PI.

Very nice details in the galaxies. The processing is soft and good.
