SGL4 - Messier 88


Recommended Posts

The majority of the Saturday night was taken up imaging this spiral galaxy in Coma Berenices and forms one end of Markarians Chain and is part of the Virgo Cluster.

Technical info:

Scope: WO FLT110

Camera: Atik 314L

Mount: EQ6 Pro

Guidescope: WO Megrez 72

Guidecamera: DSI II

Software: MaximDL, DSS and Photoshop CS3

Subs: 20 x 3mins in Luminance only

Happy with how the galaxy has come out, stars appear a little bloated, maybe it was the odd gust of wind? Picked up a few fainter fuzzies as well, maybe I'll work out what they are later.

Please enjoy!
