NGC 2683

At last an evening with guaranteed clarity allowed me to go galaxy imaging again though my sky is still compromised by the spill from the church tower floodlighting which becomes an increasing problem as the declination goes above about +25 degrees. The subs for NGC 2683 were affected to some extent though the transparency was quite good which helped minimise the effect of the stray light. Discovered by William Herschel in 1788 the galaxy resides in Lynx. Details: 10" f4.3 Newt. 10x 8 minute exposures @ iso1600 with CLS in DSS, CS2 & XAT.
