Prudhoe, Northumberland

Skywatcher 130p reflector, SXV-H9 CCD, EOS1100D DSLR, Baader 7nm Ha filter, Skywatcher HEQ5 pro mount and ZWO ASI120mm based finder guider.

A colourful spiral galaxy in the constellation Camelopardalis, some 10 million light-years distant. 24 x 5 minute exposures of luminance, stacked using 2x drizzle up-sample. Blended into the red channel were 7 x 5 minute exposures of Ha; to highlight the star forming regions. Colour added from a DSLR image I took of the object in 2014.
