NGC 5907 "Needle Galaxy" in Draco

Postby gordon_haynes » Thu May 28, 2009 6:00 am

Hi All
This is my first return to imaging after my "eventful" holiday to Orlando --- details of which are in my blog on my website [url=http://www.imagingtheheavens.co.uk/][u][color=#0000ff]http://www.imagingtheheavens.co.uk[/color][/u][/url] if you want to know more. Anyway, back to the subject. A lovely clear night on Saturday so I got everything set up. Started imaging just after 12 midnight and was planning 15x4 minutes for each channel with this subject, the red and green channels went fine apart frrom the usual light pollution where I live but I only managed 6x4 minutes for blue as I forgot about the shorter dark hours and it got too light after 3am so this one hasn't gone as deep as I would have liked. It was taken with the Takahashi BRC-250 and Starlight Xpress H36 and Astronomik RGB filters, no time for luminance on this, all unguided.
Thanks for looking
Best wishes
Gordon
