Final M100

It’s been a challenge processing this to a level that was still acceptable. But hey! here it is. Imho a bit better processed then previous versions. The faint spiral (at least the arms and outer area’s) Messier 100 in Coma Berenices.

M109: an image, despite all issues

An image of the surprisingly nice galaxy M109, located near Phecda, one of the bright stars of the Ursa Major’s bowl. Imaging was done with the C11, using the Starizona F 7.2 reducer, and the Nikon D750. Unfortunately, the image format setting in SGP was set to “FITS”. That resulted in strange, Black/White images with lots of problems! I could salvage the 27×300″ images a bit but the end result is a bit disappointing, it’s not a color version to start with. ..
