Celestron NS11 working at F/2 in Hyperstar configuration. Cameras: RGB- QHY10 with UHC-S Baader filter, H-Alpha- Atik460EX mono with H-Alpha 7 nm. Baader filter.
Description
Barred Spiral Galaxy, located in Leo. It was discovered in 1784 by William Hershel. Surprising to me was an extend of long spiral arms that usually are not captured in RGB, but were quite obvious in H-Alpha. Total exposure time 5.5 hours (2in RGB and 2.5 in H-Alpha).
