Hickson 44

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)


Hickson 44 is a small group of Galaxies in Leo.They are NGC 3185/3187/3190/3193.NGC 3190 is the edge on Galaxy at the centre of the image.They are roughly 80million lt/yrs away.

I imaged this small group of Galaxies over two nights with my WO 73 and a x0.8 reducer.I think in hindsight I could have dispensed with the reducer,and just imaged at F5.9.

It is an LRGB image of 2hrs per filter.I have,nt processed this image too hard other than slight stretches in photo-shop,and slight saturation of the stars.

Fully calibrated with bias darks and flats.

I am not too sure whether my stock reducer is coping well,as I,m not too happy with the stars,and may invest in the matched reducer for this scope.
