M66 Take 2

by , under Galaxies



Here’s a second attempt at m66. Better polar alignment, darker skies and a longer exposure (2 minutes) make this image look a lot better than my first attempt. This is 6 2 minute exposures primatively stacked in photo shop. There are no darks flats or advanced image processing going on here, just pretty basic stacking. This was an un-guided photo.

    Hey, what’s that fine streak going from lower left to upper right and passing straight through the heart of this thing? Your first asteroid, maybe?
