July 2014: M106

After some time without imaging (I’m very busy with my astrophysics master program), I came back to my CCD with this galaxy. The imaging session was abruptly terminated when some high clouds had my star guide lost. I could only cath 3 subs for each filter. Althpugh I used 500-second exposures for my subs, this was not enough to clearly uncover the weak and subtle external parts of this beautiful spiral. I trued to do my best while processing, to extract light from this area. As always, deconvolution worked miracles on the central part of the galaxy.
