NGC1269-snowball galaxy

Hi all,


I got a clear spell a couple of weeks ago and did a few nights of imaging using the ASI2600.


As i suggested in a previous post i wanted to try the gain of 0 and offset 50 which i did for these sessions.
I started with the NGC1269. I was browsing stellarium and came across this interesting ring galaxy.
No real colour here to necessarily test the settings but i thought this was an interesting subject.



17 x 420s exposures
10 x darks
gain 0
offset 50
temp -10
imaged using NINA
processed using APP
Orion EON 115mm

thanks always for looking and hope someone is getting clear skies somewhere, it ain't happening down here.

whoa! unusual and really beautiful target there.


I'm not fibbing when i say that I had a moment when i opened it on astrobin... it seems to just hang in that field and its light is really something else. I think thats just a fantastic job... a thousand high fives!



Grab yourself a tart from summer kitchen to celebrate :thum bsup:

Great image and choice of target. Don’t see that one here much.
Crisp and clear.
APP and Nina are also great choices .

Thanks everyone for your comments.


The ASI2600MC was a game changer for me in this hobby Martin,



I have so much confidence in it to perform to high standards.



Great idea JP, i will head to the summer kitchen tomorrow for the tart!
