DSOs from last night – – 25-26/08/2019

Initially the sky last night looked ideal for DSO spotting, but in fact the transparency was very poor, meaning that some considerable processing was needed on the following images to get anything at all.

For those interested, all these images were acquired with a stack of 20 X 20 second exposures, (400 seconds total) stacked in Registax 5 and processed in GIMP.

First off was IC10, an irregular galaxy in Cassiopaeia.

Then NGC2146 in Camelopardalis, with some nice detail in the core.

Then NGC925 in Triangulum (Yes there is another galaxy there as well as M33!)

 

This is a spiral, but can only see the very vaguest hint here.
