IC 10 (UGC 192, PGC 1305, LBN 591 and others) is a dwarf, star-burst galaxy approximately 2.4 million light-years away in Cassiopeia. It is a member of the Local Group. This galaxy would be a lot brighter if it wasn't obscured by the dust in the plane of the Milky Way.

Luminance – 24x600s – 240 minutes – binned 1x1
RGB – 20:17:16x300s – 100:85:80 minutes each – binned 2x2

Nice image! There are a lot of H-II regions in this dwarf galaxy. My 18" and the camera below with the Ha filter picked these up. The dust does hinder, but the dust effects with an Ha filter is minimized.
