NGC 383 Chain
« on: 19:58:50, 13 November, 2017 »


We had a cold frosty, and very clear. Early Winter sky during Sunday evening.
It was very welcome too. I was itching to finally capture some more ancient light, from the Whirlpool control room here in
Cheshire.

Here is a picture of a very unfamiliar (to me) chain of Galaxies in Pisces. NGC 383.

I used my Atik 428ex on my 4.5" Altair Astro 115 EDT F7 Apo. The exposure times were all 600 seconds, with one 900 seconds exposure added.

I have listed all the objects visible in the field, copied from "Observing Selected, Small Galaxy Groups" by Alvin Huey.

Nice spot Paul. If you hunt the star charts there are quite a few of these little chains around.

Thank you, Mark.

I have not imaged this area before. And I am very pleased how well this image has come out.
All I want now. Are more clear skies. Pleeeese.
