Description
This moderately wide field image of M104 was taken using a DSI Pro (L:100x30sec) and a DSI (RGB:35x60sec) fitted with twin Meade 60AZ-T refractors (60mm f/5.8 table-top telescopes) driven by an LXD75. The source images were saved as FITS3P combined offline in drizzle. Drizzle was also used to convert the FITS3P from the DSI to a BMP. The LRGB was then assembled in Photoshop.
