Hi Guys - after months of rain and cloud  and at the point of despair, finally got two weeks of moonless nights and got some data . This is the first image I have been working on. NGC 4565, a popular target and a great galaxy I think with those prominent dust lanes and just tilted enough to appreciate that it is spiral galaxy, ? barred. The distance is a bit uncertain as far as I can see, between 30 and 50 million light years, so the size is also uncertain either between our galaxy and the Andromeda galaxy or even bigger if  it is 50million light years distant. Anyway taken with a 12inch RCT QSI 683 and about 30x10minutes luminance and 4x10minutes for each of RGB.  Processed mainly in Pixinsight with a bit of Photoshop.
