Object type: Galaxy (edge-on view)
Date: Aug 31/08|
Camera: Meade DSI-C
Exposure length: 30 seconds
Processing: Aquired, stacked, and histogram adjusted in K3CCDtools, post-processing in Photoshop.
Notes: Almost 4 years after my original shot with my modified ToUcam, this one was taken with the Meade DSI-C.
Date: Oct 12/04
Camera: ToUcam SC1.5 (prior to direct bias modification)
Exposure length: 45 seconds
Amp on setting: OFF
Processing: Aquired, stacked, and histogram adjusted in K3CCDtools, noise reduction in NeatImage.
Notes: Amp glow is evident at the upper left, as is some periodic error (next time, I'll have to use higher gain). Otherwise, this is a reasonable shot of this edge-on galaxy. Note that part of the core is obscured by dark dust lanes.
