I took a stab at re-processing an image of NGC 4565 that I took in May of 2005. I applied darks and flats in Maxim DL (http://www.cyanogen.com/), aligned and combined each color in CCDStack (http://www.ccdware.com/products/ccdstack/), color combined and finished in Photoshop. I chose not to crop it because of the small galaxy visible in the lower right corner.

It may be a bit on the dark side. My monitor is fairly bright so I find that I can lighten up an image more than it looks like on the screen.

A full sized version (http://obsballona.net/coppermine/displayimage.php?pos=-41) is at my web site.

NGC 4565, May 14, 2005, LRGB 75 minutes, L 1X1 40 minutes, RG 2X2 10 minutes, B 2X2 15 minutes, 5 minute exposures, Maxim DL, CCDStack, Photoshop

Updated: I decided it was too dark. A lightened version is now attached.
