Trial and error is the only way I know to explore the huge multidimensional parameter space of the PixInsight tools, and that takes time. The astro-images on our web site demonstrate the imaging capabilities of the products used and are not intended to represent what you will see when you look through a telescope. So what took so long to "lick" the processing of the Deer Lick Group?! It is one of the brighter galaxies we can observe at magnitude Then you won't miss news about our sales, new products, or our popular monthly What's In The Sky newsletter. At 40 million light years distance, it is a bright and dusty spiral galaxy that is thought to maybe be a "twin" of our home Milky Way galaxy.

Its revisions will not be deleted. The SSAG guide camera used on this photo just isn't sensitive enough to work at f22 so I ended up getting a Lodestar guider to replace it. The smaller and dimmer galaxies are often referred to as The Fleas. It works really well and I've been successfully using it ever since. Some materials in our Resource Center require Adobe Reader. Well, one aspires to the high standards set by the most skilled astrophotographers who have captured the same target, even knowing that such results are beyond one's reach ;. Note the tidal tails which connect several of these galaxies.
NGC - Deerlick Galaxy
It is the major galaxy in the "Deer Lick Group" of galaxies. George Simon, gitane71, rflinn68 and 4 others like this. Its just that I've found its easier to run the guiding from a separate scope and wanted to see if it was practical to combine the Lunt with the Edge it isn't.
