NGC2903 in Leo


Scope: C8 f/5 Location: Blair Valley, Anza Borrego Desert CA  14 Feb. 2004 Camera: ToUcam SC3

Exposure: 20  x 80 sec Luminance exposure with IR block filter. 10 x 60 RGB Exposures

Processing: Images were captured in K3CCDTools. Aligned/stacked in Registax and saved as FITS. Luminance and Color master frames were co-registered in Astroart. Luminance and Color FITS were combined in Photoshop with Luminance Layering. Color balancing and final touches in Photoshop.

This image was taken with poor seeing and a fair bit of wind - it did take some time to get usable frames even though this was a guided image. Nonetheless, the image did come out - however, the image is a bit soft due to the poor conditions.  This image replaces the February 2003 image which can be seen in the Archives here.  Horizontal FOV is 16'
