Noel recently processed this Chara data taken at the New Forest Observatory.  Chara, or Beta Canum Venaticorum goes with Cor Coroli or Alpha Canum Venaticorum as the pair of stars that make the constellation Canes Venatici – the hunting dogs.  As per usual, in this image North is to the right.  Don’t see that many images of Cor Caroli or Chara about 🙂

    And a nice pair of galaxies as well! I sense you are doing a large mosaic of the region!

    Is it me, or is the colour balance just a touch on the teal side?

    Being Noel I can promise you the colour will be spot on. This is a downsized, JPEG converted, non-print version which does on occasion slightly colour shift.
    Not doing a mosaic, just getting the main stars of Canes Venatici which don’t seem to get much air time.
