After an uncountable number of late nights and many a moment of abysmal dismay, and with many things still not working properly, I can finally present the first image in nine months whose luminance was entirely acquired by me, and that finds my content.

I worked for a few nights on NGC 5906/7 (there’s ambiguity in the naming), collecting 51x600” luminance shots with a GSO RC8 at full focal length.

Unfortunately there isn’t the faintest hint of the feeble tidal streams visible in Gabany’s image.

The color data was kindly provided by Samuel Diaz Lopez.
