Jeff Terry's Astrophotos/NGC4038_110minutes.jpg

The top image is reprocessed with a Lucy-Richardson Deconvolution. I was inspired by

Alan Chen's remarkable NGC4038 image.

The middle image was a sum of twenty-two 5 minute exposures with a Tak Epsilon-210 on an NJP mount..

The image was collected and processed in iCCD with an SXV-H9C. An SBIG STV was used to guiding the NJP mount.

The camera suffered from a giant dust-bunny on it.

T-shirt flats where used to remove the dust donut. Unfortunately, being the first one that i ever did, I didn't grab enough flats.

The bottom image is a strech of the region around the galaxy showing the tails.
