NGC 6050 & IC 1179 (Arp 272)

NGC 6050 and IC 1179 in the center form Arp 272. This Arp is in the class Double Galaxies
with connected arms. Taken June 9, 11 and 12, 2007 with a DSI Pro II and Outback Cooler
on a C8NGT (8" Newtonian f5). This is cropped and resampled from a larger image of
Abell 2151 see: All subframes were 180 sec.
The RGB subframes were also used to make synthetic L subframes (sL), which were
then used in the total stack of images to create the final L image resulting in the following
total exposures (L+sL):R:G:B (min) = (171+87):87:87:87. 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.
