Telescope: Skywatcher 8" f/5 Newtonian
Focus: Prime focus
Camera: SAC7B, uncooled
Exposure: 69 x 25s
Date: 12th March 2003
Processing: Acquired in K3CCDTools as
AVI. Stacked in Iris. YRGB image, composited in Photoshop.
Colour enhanced using Multiple Luminance Layering.
Taken in conditions of poor transparency,
and with insufficient no. of frames. The image is still unsatisfactory
but is interesting for the use of a technique in Photoshop (I'll write more
about this some time) to enhance the brightness of the galaxy itself against
the sky background.
