A lovely little galaxy pairing in Coma Berenices.
Taken from Heaven's Mirror Observatory in the Sierras, this is an HaLRGB image consisting of 3:6:4:4:4 hours. Planewave 17", Apogee U16M and Astrodon filters.
Here is the full frame image which also contains NGC 4747 in the lower right. A lovely addition to the field, but kind of spoils the composition.
Thanks for looking

Stunning as usual
I always enjoy your images

That central big galaxy has superb colors and details. So smooth. :thumbsup:

Ok, here I am in my observatory tonight having taken 150 monochrome 30 second galaxy images and then I see this. Seriously Martin your work is just sensational. If I can find another SN, my request is in.... please image the galaxy for me. Will let you know, soon hopefully.

Sensational Martin. The detail is just mind boggling and the big star halo and that wispy spray of stars just visible. Fabulous.

I dare you to move to 'scope to Cronulla and still get the same results :)
Technical excellence and a visual delight. Wonderful stuff Martin. :thumbsup::thumbsup:
They are both wonderful images Martin.
I really liked seeing all those background galaxies as well.

An amazing galaxy photo Martin.

From Cronulla you'd get an excellent shot of the "Ice Cream Nebula" as some kid drops his ice cream on your lens!

Amazing Martin. That CDK17 continues to impress.
18-06-2012, 08:49 AM
Wow, that is very cool! Great going Martin. :thumbsup:
18-06-2012, 09:05 AM
Lovely image. Great equipment makes for great images. Well that and quite a lot of skill. Very smooth image with excellent colour. Would like the same gear myself.

Astounding and all the above comments.
18-06-2012, 09:22 AM
Perhaps your best galaxy image to date Martin...?
18-06-2012, 06:16 PM
Hey Mike - I would personally rate this as my 4th best galaxy behind M51 (http://www.martinpughastrophotography.id.a u/images/M51_LRGB.jpg) (which I love!), M81 (http://www.martinpughastrophotography.id.a u/images/M81-HaLRGB-Final.jpg), M31 (http://www.martinpughastrophotography.id.a u/images/M31_New.jpg) then this.

OUTSTANDING Martin, an amazing detail on display here!
18-06-2012, 06:36 PM
This one is amazing

Not for me, this latest image looks just so "real" probably because of the very fine detailed HII regions and less saturated colours..? I like the uncropped version best too :)
Still all top quality of course :thumbsup:
19-06-2012, 10:21 AM
Superb as usual well worth a look
19-06-2012, 06:22 PM
Thanks again for the posts.
Mike - glad you liked ALL of them!

:) Beautifully processed, as usual.

That's a perfect galaxy image there Martin! I really like this, with just the right saturation and what a great level of detail. It looks very natural and beautiful, very impressive. I think galaxy saturation is often overdone, it's more suited for nebulae. Thanks for the view!

A great image of a very interesting target, Martin!

Thanks very much folks.
clear skies (not here in Yass:mad2:)
