Equipment
Meade RCX16 for L and Ha; Celestron 11 for RGB. Camera SBIG for all exposures.
Description
Collaboration between Switzerland and Italy. As I did not had the time before sunrise to take all the LRGBHa exposures, I concentrated on L and HA long exposures with my larger diameter scope 16', while my friend Alberto in Rome took the RGB exposures. Once combined, it gives a nive view of the gas jets from the core of the galaxy.
