M106 added more data

I could add 116 shots of 120 seconds, in an attempt to bring out the outer spiral arms more clear. The total integration time is now over 8 hours and this is the LRGB combination below (all shot from Meldert, Belgium). Click on the picture to go to Astrobin.

These 4 nights were more or less used, there was some high-altitude clouds passing by which not always affect the photometer (click for a larger image)

M106 in Close Up

M106 image on March 29-30th 2019, ASI183mmPro and Esprit120mm LRGB

A first LRGB attempt on this subject. I have never imaged M106 before, always exciting to explore a new galaxy. I find the outer spiral arms are not clear enough: need to add more data…

This was an LRGB combination using AstroPixelProcessor.

For now a final NGC3628, in color!

I had finally a break in the clouds, no moon, to capture some color for my NGC3628. This color was already long waited for ( I started the first luminance February 24th). So I added 7x300s Blue, Red and Green. I combined those in Photoshop with the previous Luminance. See all details on Astrobin
