M63 and these elusive faint loops
      #5629129 - 01/17/13 11:33 PM

Hi,

Tried my go on this. Hard to process as these streams are as faint as a hope for clear skies. They were discovered by Jay GaBany and since then there have been very few deep close up images showing them

Thanks for looking

Mark

Yea, I've got to second that one. You should give NGC 5907 a shot. I imaged it last year from southern Utah under skies so dark that I swear blinking would ruin my night vision . After about 8 hours of integration time...the loop was there in my image but it was so faint as to be on the very edge of detection. I haven't shot M63 - but I can vouch for the difficulty of the loop in NGC 5907. You should give it a go - it'll be coming around here in a month or two.

Mike

Thanks again guys!

Looks that 5907 will be a tough one.

for reference, i checked my effort on NGC5907 -- with a modest sized 160mm refractor i achieved "visible" after 24x20min Lum plus 12x15min each RGB (17hrs). take the longest subs you can manage.

go for it!
