Description
Combining exposures taken recently with exposures taken last year, I produced this LRGB image of M109. The L image used was a combination of 38 600sec 1x1 binned exposures, the R and G images combinations of 360s 2x2 binned exposures, and the B image a combination of 480s 2x2 binned exposures. This image is cropped. Exposures were captured using Nebulosity 2 and the guiding by PHD. Image processing using DeepSkyTacker, Nebulosity 2, PhotoShop, and PixInsight LE.
