This is IC 10, a relatively benign structure galaxy with a lot of hydrogen regions and starbirth. Part of our local group. not many people image this since it has a 'limited amount' of any features unless you get a lot of Ha data with a narrow (7nm or less) filter.

This one was a labour of love, or dogged determination, whichever.

It has only ~8 hours data which took nearly 6 weeks because of the weather. I also got a new scope so I decided to stop just as it was about to develop some features!

Scope: Intes MN56 Maksutov Newtonian (127 mm, f/6)


62 x 240s RGB (only with UV/IR cut of the ASI2600 MC Pro)

60 x 240 s with quadband filter (Altair) to extra the (noisy) Ha channel.

Processed in APP entirely, with color matching, boost and noise reduction in PS CS5.

@cwm2col Fantastic details in the galaxy, both in the light and the dark features.
