View Full Version here: : M82

Here's my last northern object for a while as the moon is starting to be a problem. I screwed up with the framing on this one because I thought you couldn't fit M81 and M82 in the one frame on this CCD but you can quite easily. By time I realized this I thought I would just stick with M82 but you can see part of M81 at the bottom of the frame. Maybe a portrait of M81 and M82 will come next dark sky.

Good Ha coming out of the galaxy with just RGB, looks like a touch of IFN all around too.

Thanks John. There is lots of IFN in this area but you need long exposures to pick it up.

Not too bad Steve. Needs a bit more focal length ideally. What camera is this?

It's a QSI 583WSG as stated in the caption to the image

This is one galaxy I have always wanted to image. I like the colour and the Ha shows good detail.

Thanks Paul. It's always been a favourite of mine too. This is just a LRGB too. Was planning to get some Ha but it didn't work out. For a 20cm telescope this thing produces pretty good detail.
