NGC253 - Sculptor Galaxy captured with C11"

Recommended Posts

Just a smooth processing to keep the galaxy real in the field.

Not able to take long subs due to the light pollution site, the limit exp time was 120s. A RGB challenge in a bortle 9 location.

L 80x120s

RGB 20x120s

C11" HD reduced with a Astrophysics CCDT67 (f/7.3) + ASI1600mm-c

Mount Skywatcher AZ-EQ6 GT

Processing in PixInsight.

Very nice. Bortle 9! Processing must have been quite difficult.

Yeah, bortle 9 makes the work become harder.
The background gradient was faint due to limited exposure times (120s max.)
Thanks very much for the reply.

Wow excellent capture and processing. And the colours are very nice indeed 

Considering your level of light pollution and at that focal length I would be very proud of such a image

Well done

That extra focal length make all the difference, great shot. I have a 12 inch LX 200 but not the skill or mount to pull off something like this.
