Description

While Jack Harvey & Steve Mazlin waited for the weather in Chile to clear, they decided to reprocess an old image of M106, from data originally acquired by J. Thibert in 2006 at NMS.

Several revisions later, Thibert himself, long since retired from the SSRO scene, weighed in on the evidence and added a few additonal enhancements.

So like a fine (Chilean) red that improves with age, we present M106 (again).
