One of my favorite galaxies. I like all edge-on galaxies and this one has a uniqueness to it that makes it special. The original had a splotchy background and the color was muted and dull. I increased saturation and shifted the color balance to be more bluish. I used the add noise PS filters to get the background to look smoother.
This version of the Outer Limits Galaxy came out better than my first go of it with the Rising Tech IMX224 cam, even though it seems to be slightly out of focus. I bet I will be trying again soon, since I think it could be better with the right exposure/gain, location and of course, better focus. 🙂
Not too bad considering the amount of light pollution and the short time (only 33 minutes.)
Here’s an object I’ve been itching to shoot with the RT IMX224 cam. This is only 27 minutes worth of 20 sec exposures! 🙂
I think that between 500 and 1000 subs would really be what this object needs with this setup. In the meantime, I put the above image together with 25 minutes of DSLR camera data taken with the same scope. Check it out:
I imaged this galaxy with the Rising Tech Sony IMX224-based Eyepiece/Guider cam the other night. It could use more time, but what I did get shows it well enough. Color on the stars were lacking since the gain settings I was using washed them out.
