imaged NGC 4214 at last (Halifax)

I asked the Burke-Gaffney Observatory to image NGC 4214 some time ago. A galaxy in Canes Venatici. Another of the RASC Finest NGCs. Finally got some data (albeit during a bright Moon). It is a disturbed system, amorphous and mottled.

RASC Finest galaxy NGC 4214 in luminance

Luminance only, 60 seconds subexposures, 10 stacked shots. FITS Liberator, GIMP. North is up; east is left.

There seems to be a double to the south-east...


I believe this also refers to NGC 4228, the Starburst Galaxy...


Imaged again with a better outcome on 11 Apr '18.
