Deep Sky Challenge

Here's an opportunity to exercise your processing muscles on data collected using the MRI-VIS-CCD on the Deep Impact Flyby spacecraft. The targets were M51, NGC6960 (left), NGC6960 (right), and M27. I think I'll have a go!

Cheers,
Rick.

Thanks for the reminder, I downloaded these a couple of weeks ago and completely forgot about it.

The FITS files are a bit more complex than what I get from my SX and QHY CCD cameras. This could be very educational

I wasn't so much getting them for the picture either but about skills in processing.
