NGC 2403 Big and Small


Recommended Posts

Last night, while waiting for my intended target to rise higher in the sky, I captured 3 hrs of LRGB on NGC 2403, just as well as I was clouded out by 9 pm. It has come out better than I expected given the poor conditions and meagre integration time, so  I combined it with some wider field data taken last year to double the integration time.

178 mins on Esprit150/IMX571 OSC and 195 mins LRGB on Esprit 150/ASI178.

Thanks for looking.

This has come out well given the low integration time. I imaged the same target a couple of years ago and although I managed to get about 7 hours on it, I still felt it would benefit from more time. Maybe I can add to my previous data at some point - see what come out of it.

This is a tricky one to capture, the galaxy seems like it has lost its gravity from the center and is ripping apart, guess that is an illusion as it is probably just faint

Good job
