imaged galaxy NGC 4214 again (Halifax)

I tried imaging NGC 4214 with the BGO before in July 2017 but the results were not great. The robot captured more data again. This time when the galaxy was nearly straight up.

galaxy NGC 4214 in luminance

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

Much better.

It also looks like there's a boat load of little distant galaxies in this image...


Looks like a cosmic ray hit north-west of the galaxy.
