gotta do the time to get the detail and smoothness on these fairly faint guys.
Good to see you going for it!
I love these galaxies and haven't had a real good chance at them this year.
So it's good to see others being able to get something down.
Looking again at your images, can't help to think that you really need to do some flat fielding here.... the back ground is very uneven and blotchy....
Makes life really hard when processing these fainter, delicate objects..
I'm pretty lucky that I've never really had to do any flats..... but I know heaps of folk that have to to correct any optical problems..
Worth the quick learning curve I'd say Eric..
Thanks for sharing..
All the best
