Another one of my spring imaging projects...

 

M106 and companions imaged with a StellarVue SVQ100 astrograph, ZWO 183MM Pro CMOS camera,

and AstroDon E-series TruBalance LRGB filter set. Camera was operated at a gain of 50, offset of 0,

and temperature of -20 C. All images frames are of a 300s integration time.

 

Frame count per filter:

L-filter: 76 frames
R-filter: 12 frames
G-filter: 12 frames
B-filter: 12 frames

 

Total integration time: 7 hours

 

Processed in PixInsight.

Enjoy,

A slightly better processing for a darker background.
