Galaxies M83 in Hydra
10 - 5 minute exposures at 800 ISO on 1 May 2008 from the balcony of Gerhard Klaus in Puimichel in the South of France, SQM reading 21.5
This image was made with a modified Canon 40D, and a 20-cm (8") f/2.75 ASA Astrograph.
This is a full size crop from the same image, M83 was quite low in the sky and you can notice the noise caused by light pollution. Still I'm glad I got this one
at home it is much too low to make an image.
