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

The Eskimo Nebula in Gemini is a very small object. It’s comparable to Jupiter in apparent size. It’s also a lot dimmer then Jupiter so longer exposures are required. The ASI184mmPro has small pixels (smaller then the ASI290) and could, when seeing allows, bring out the finest details. The diameter of the planetary nebula is 48″ !!! Here is my attempt from last Monday:
