About this image

Time refers to midpoint of stack and is UT.

I'm really pleased with the RASA - it's a widefield instrument that I bought primarily for comet imaging, but as a bonus I do achieve good enough resolution to follow many transients.

Thanks Jeremy. This is, in fact, a substantial crop, just to focus attention on the galaxy. Astro has been a godsend: I've found tinkering with the telescope and camera a welcome distraction in these times.
