Title: Blackeye
Post by: petevasey on 20:25:25, 08 March, 2018
I first imaged M64 in 2005 with my Artemis 285 and Mirage 8.  No flat frame, and I was always a little unhappy with it.  Playing with the very useful Astroflat Pro helped considerably (before and after below) but I reckoned it was worth a revisit.  And after all the snow, ice and clouds the weather relented last night, so before the Moon rose too high I just squeezed in enough data to be worth processing when added to a few frames collected on 16th February.

QSI 683 on RC10 at f8 with SX AO unit.  Luminance 11 x 10 minutes unbinned, RGB each 4 x 5 minutes binned 2x2.  Cropped a little from the original to show North up - the camera was rotated 90 deg. to get a suitable guide star.

Cheers

Peter
