Messier 99 - Virgo Pinwheel Galaxy

Post by ionia23 »

Here's another one where Im applying what I know now to image data I took then. Im really surprised at what I could glean from such a small set of subs.

10 x 45s light frames (7m 30s integration time)
No darks, flats, bias frames.

Imaging Date: 04-19-2021
Location: Tucson, AZ urban skies
Camera: Orion Starshoot G4 color
Guiding: None
Telescope: Orion Skyview Pro 8 (203mm)
Mount: Orion Atlas

Debayering and stacking in FitsWork4
IMage processing in Startools

There's some very creative suggestions in the "unofficial" manual. I've barely scratched the surface.
