More from APOs 2nd light NGC2403

#1

More from last nights haul.

This is NGC2403 a smallish spiral galaxy. Data had lots of sky glow in it from the nearby moon, poor seeing, and windy. Which accounts for the high noise level.

Still fairly decent data in spite of the conditions :D

Not half bad. I understand your complaints, but it is still a nice snapshot.

Nice image even with the competing conditions.

You could always put your name in your Signature if you don't want to be called "Hank" (Chuckles :lol: ). Just a thought.
