IC 342

More than a month has passed since i had a go at imaging IC 342 and finally this week i had a chance! A very difficult object for me to capture, even a 2.5min exposure only really shows the galactic core. Ive been reading up a bit about this galaxy and it is partially obscured by dusty areas in the milky way which gives it its name “the hidden galaxy”. The ridiculous light pollution of course doesn’t help matters !  This is a total stack of 81×2.5min. It is rather colorful i know but i do like this effect and ive seen some ic 342’s before with a golden look 🙂
