M83

Hi again all

This is another shot I took last week under the skies of Coonabarabran which were cloudy and wet but all was not lost.

Exposure time was 9 x 15 minutes shot with the SXV-H9C through the ZS 110 guided with the ZS 66SD on an AP600E.

Capture align & combine in AA3 and all post processing done in CS2 and of cause a larger image can be found at my site for those who are interested.

Hi Louie

That is a beautiful image of M83. I cannot recollect seeing one where the galaxy arms were so dense – the knots and dark lanes are fantastic.

Cheers

Dennis

Beautiful structure and colour, on my favourite object. Thanks for sharing Louie. You seem to be spending a lot of time in Coona. It's paying off by the look of this one.
