|This is a dim spiral galaxy around 50 million light years away.
Meade 16in LX200 telescope operating at f/10
SBIG ST8E CCD camera with color filter wheel
color production was used to create this image.
Luminance = 70 minutes
Red = 20 minutes
Green = 20 minutes
Blue = 20 minutes
One iteration of L-R deconvolution (sharpening) algorithm using
CCDsharp was applied to the luminance image.
The raw FWHM for this image is 1.6 arcseconds.
Digital Development (DDP) via Maxim/DL was also used in order to
display the the very dim and very bright details of the image simultaneously.
