A very nice start indeed,

If I remember correctly this galaxy has a lovely golden hue to it,

Unless I am thinking of another.

Good luck Michael with the color data.

You never know your luck.

Great start!

I have about 4 hrs of LRGB data on this target, it is coming out a silvery blue on the initial stack but after doing a star colour calibration in APP the galaxy has indeed acquired a golden hue. It certainly has an intriguing appearance, the dust lanes look almost artificial, too 'clean'.

Unfortunately I had a substantial dust doughnut on the Lum camera which I thought would calibrate out but flats do have a limit to what they can clean up so I think I need to take the lum data again.
