Hi,

as said here,

http://www.astrobin.com/162408/C/

I was lucky with the weather conditions in Copenhagen Denmark a couple of days in March 2016. Now in total ~6.6 hours exposure of the M97 object. The OIII halo consist of 48*5min subs = 4 hours exposure blended into the green and blue color channels.

This is a slightly modified/updated version compared to the version shown in my astrobin account.

Latest M97 version this year, ~10hours in total exposure, a LRGB,NB picture,

Hi Niels!

 

There are some interesting little subtle things showing up in the different layers or puffs of gas coming out.

 

My eye keeps being drawn, however, to the object just to the left of the nebula.  I keep trying to figure out what it is.

 

Thanks,

 

Bill

Hi Bill, thanks for comments.

The star close to the object is called,

GCS3824-1065.jpg

The object (according to TheSkyX) is a galaxy called PGC 34279 as far as I know.

Please see this link, and/or Google the object.
