Description

This galaxy is an old favorite - I imaged it again  because of the location at SSRO and the 16 inch RC there. Good data is a real pleasure to work with - one can play around a lot while processing.  For this image I tried to avoid my usual heavy handed processing procedures. Is it my imagination or do unweighted images tend to be greenish?

Comments for improvement always welcome.
