M66 (Arp 016)

M66 (NGC 3627, Arp 016) spiral galaxy type Sb in Leo. Taken Mar. 23, 24 & 26 2008 in poor
transparency with a DSI Pro II and Outback Cooler, on a C8NGT (8" Newtonian f5) and an ASGT mount.
LRGB subframes were 3 minutes each resulting in the following total exposures L:R:G:B (min) =
162:72:81:75. Color balance was achieved via numerically scaled channels. Captured with Envisage,
calibrated and sigma combined in Iris with other processing using FITZ, PixInsight LE and
Photoshop CS. North is up.

other sizes: small medium original auto
