Bardsey Island, North Wales
This latest version is just over six hourâ€™s worth of five minute exposures taken through a modified EOS 6D at iso 1600 . The camera was mounted on a Meade 10â€ LX 200 ACF .
This is one of my favourite astro targets; there is so much to see in this galaxy and it richly rewards the imaging time devoted to it . From the interaction area with its companion galaxy through to the many areas of hydrogen nebulae it is such a treasure trove of galactic activity .
