NGC4565 Flying Saucer Galaxy from New Mexico

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I am starting to process the 10 Gigs of image data I took last week while out in western New Mexico.

The seeing was poor (2=below average) and I was imaging at 2000mm with an AT10RC and an ASI-533MCp with a UV-IR filter at .39"/pixel which is over-sampled for poor seeing.

NGC4565 Flying Saucer or Needle galaxy about 65 x 3 minute subs after I purged the worst ones.  Captured and processed with Astro Art 7.

The image was soft and the fine details were fuzzed out until a buddy ran it through Topaz DeNoise and wow....what an improvement.

Here is the imaging rig used....AT10RC on an AP900GTO with an ASI-533MCp with a Baader UV-IR filter. 

Guider is an old University Optics 80mm "Kit Scope" with an ASI-290MM


I call it the "Galaxy Canon" 🤪
