Description

This First Light Image from SSRO-S PROMPT 2 telescope is a quick processing of NGC2997, a spiral galaxy in Antila.  This is short with only 32 min of 4 min Luminance (NIR-blocked clear filter) and 18 min of each red, green and blue 6 min exposures. Darks, biases and sky flat calibrated.  We are all impressed with the signal in such short time
