Image was captured with G4-16000 camera on the 20” CDK modified
Dall-Kirkham telescope working at f/6.8. Image is combined from color
exposures taken through RGB filters and unfiltered luminance
exposures. Total exposure time is 29 hours.
This image may look similar to other images of the respective
galaxy. But we strongly recommend to see the image in full resolution
(just click the image show above). Only then it reveals how incredible
details can be seen in the galaxy structure, its dark dust lanes, red
Hα gaseous clouds and bright blue regions of
newly born stars. Congratulations CielAustral group
to another breathtaking image!
