NGC 1532 in Eridanus

Hey everybody.

I guess like most, imaging time with the weather some (if not all) of us have experienced over the past few weeks has been limited....plus I am hard packing up the house for my move to the US in Jan.....naturally, I am leaving the scope till the very last moment.

Actually, I had planned to post this a few days ago, but literally on the day Rob G nailed an APOD with the same galaxy, using the 1.5m data from Chile . So, it seemed a little pointless.

Anyway, here 'tis...and as always, thanks for looking and the feedback.

LRGB 10.3.3.3 hours.

cheers
Martin

Martin,,that is a fine image indeed, you have captured it very well, I agreed mate, pack up the house, but don't move that scope until absolutely necessary, nice work.
