NGC253, the sculptor Galaxy
At last two clear night : November has been harsch. Let's say one night and a half given the awful humidity we got yesterday.
Shooting this object from Paris is quite a nonsense. Less than 15° high, just inside the light pollution, and a seeing destroyed by the turbulences from the building in front of our flat.
Nevertheless, i got two hours free between Helix and M1, so i went for it.
36x300s with CLS filter. The second night shots have just been used for accentuation for their SNR was rather poor.
Atik314L+ with LX90 1200mm. Sampling 1.1"/pixel, FWHM 4.5"
Location : Chatenay Malabry.
