Walking on the Moon

m74 L-HaRGB with SPX350


Recommended Posts

SPX350 F4.5 on EQ6 with ATK16-HR.

L-HaRGB, 220-45 12 12 12m. RGB binned2x2. In 3/5min subs.

Had guiding collimation problems during this imaging over a few nights, issues now sorted.

This galaxy is faint and big over 10' but very H alpha rich.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks folks for comments, as for focal length it is 1585mm and is slightly cropped from ATK16-HR 1392x1042 to 1328x997. I love my ATK-16HR.

Olly - I imaged it briefly with 10" at 1250mm making it a bit smaller but it is large at 12x10' similar size to fireworks galaxy NGC6946 and at 950mm (ATK-16HR has 32x24' field) M74 will have good area of black sky to contrast against filling middle third of frame.
