NGC2403, taken mid January from my garden. I'm fairly pleased with this result. I was hoping to get more of the fine spiral arms, but the light pollution here meant that the S/N was just not strong enough to pull them out.

I like when images like this are posted -@Jabberwocky has overcome local LP and developed a very good broadband image of a challenging mag8 object - it also pushes me into finding out more about the subject matter - so now I know this galaxy is over 8 Million light years distant !!! and is up near Polaris in the M81 group .... it’s fascinating  finding stuff like this out ...And we have an image on our forum - thanks Mark 

Oh - just found all this out on your Astrobin post as well

Hi Bryan,

Many thanks for your kind words. I'm delighted that you like my image. I sort of enjoy the fight against the LP, not because of it, but to try to show what is possible from suburban locations. I'm still hoping to have a perfectly clear and stable night, when I have a fully charged set of batteries and a midlands wide power cut. I probably have a better chance of winning the lottery though 🤣

Looks great. Easing off the black point a little might bring out more faint detail.

Thanks, I did look at that, but I'm right up against the noise where I am. If I push it much more you end up with a mess and you can't really see any more of the faint stuff. Its at the point of merging into the noise completely. Admittedly, my darks are way out of date and I will re-do them soon. That should help separating out more of the noise with a bit of luck.
