C65-Sculptor Galaxy on 10/19/09

Tonight was as nice as last night, but again, quite cold. I decided to do some more wide-field imaging with my Nikon D50 using the 2″ Orion SkyGlow Imaging Filter that I got a while back. I think it does a good job of lowering the overall sky noise that I’ve seen, particularly with this camera. I love wide field shots because they show context and this one is no exception to that. The Sculptor Galaxy fills my DSI-II camera almost completely and is neat to image with that, but it’s also neat to see the context of this galaxy.
