NGC 7497 and dust

Across the end of November and the beginning of December 2013, Samuel and I have collaborated on another nice project. I’m really taking a liking for galaxies with nearby dust, whether it be the Integrated Flux Nebula in our Milky Way, or some extragalctic residual of gravitational interaction.

This image is the result of 23.2 hours worth of data, structured as follows:

  • Luminance: 40x1200”, GSO RC10, Atik 4000, Paramount MX
  • RGB: 59x600”, GSO RC8, Moravian Instruments G2-1600, 10Micron GM2000

The image can be seen on AstroBin as well: NGC 7496 and dust on AstroBin.
