Title: M94 high resolution image
Submitted On: 3/19/2004
Photographer: Ron Wodaski
Equipment Used: RC Optical Systems Carbon Truss 20 inch f/8.1 Ritchey-Chretien
SBIG Research 11000XM Class 1 CCD Camera ABG
SBIG STL-11000 CCD camera

This was taken with the 20" RC and STL-11000 at my observatory in New Mexico. The seeing kept improving as I was imaging, so the luminance images show a lot of detail. This is a combination of six 15-minute luminance image, and three sets of RGB data (15:9:18 minutes). The image is deep enough to show the very dim outer ring of stars around M94. There is a bright core, then a dim disk, and further out a very dim ring of stars. I will post another image with special processing to show the ring in greater contrast - you might need to brighten your monitor to see the ring in this image.
