The Whale galaxy is absolutely stunning and when its cleaning up on screen, you can almost image the galaxy as the milky way overhead. Or I might just be nuts.

I need to be your neighbor so I can learn how to use my asi224mc to do images like this. What processing software do you use?

I happily share what I know. :-)


I used the livestacking portion of sharpcap. And save as viewed. I don't touch it except to remove the overlap edges
