IC342 LRGB 6 cropped

IC 342, the "hidden galaxy" in Camelopardalus. Because the galaxy appears near our galactic plane, it is dimmed and heavily reddened by the intervening dust. Image was taken with a 12.5" PlaneWave OTA and an SBIG ST-2K camera at f/5.3. Total integration time was 390:120:120:120 mins LRGB (12.5 hours) with an average FWHM of 3.0 arc-secs. Data was captured on 12/8/2012 and 1/12/2013 from a semi-rural area near Anza, CA.
