M100 with ASTRA Remote Telescope by Susy Ghia

The images have been shot by Susy Ghia using ASTRA Remote Telescope #4, a refractor 90mm f/4.5 with SBIG ST-8300M.

M100 and surrounding

This is the result of four images for a total exposure of 35 minutes, I used IRIS for registering and stacking the images, also I applied the Asinh filter to stretch the image to increase the details, than with Lightroom CC I increased the sharpness and reduced the noise a little bit to make it pretty.

A closer look at M100 and NGC4312

I analyzed the luminance photo using Astrometrica, APT, Topcat, Aladin and the website CDS Portal; below I post some interesting objects I found through the image, the information are from the CDS Portal but I rounded this values to make them easier and more practical to remember.
