Description

Here's 46 HOURS in the life of NGC 2613

Here are some other notable attempts of this small galaxy:

Daniel Verschatse in March 2004

Daniel Verschatse in Feb 2007

Jack Harvey in May 2008

Jack Harvey in Nov 2008

...and Rob Gendler's version in 2006 using the 1.5M ESO/Danish scope at LaSilla (48 SECONDS -- only 1/3450 of our exposure time, but with a mirror almost 14X the area -- an interesting comparison -- can't beat the star resolution of the big scope, but obviously whoever collects more photons achieves the better S/N.)
