Hi Yizhou
I really like the color saturation you’ve achieved...great contrast with the dusty surroundings.  Thanks for sharing.

Hi all,

We are a new imaging team just started imaging from DSNM since this Nov (Yep we brought you guys the clouds and snow!). I am happy to share a set of data of NGC1333 acquired at DSNM with our dual-scope setup. First timer here and it's super fun (and nervous) to operate the system a few hundreds miles away, and we really like the quality of the data. 


Thanks and clear skies!

Hi all:

NGC 474 and 470 are interacting galaxies in Pisces, also cataloged as Arp 227 (galaxies with concentric rings):

NGC 1073 is a small barred spiral about 55 million light-years distant; it is sometimes compared to our Milky Way. There are lots of fainter background galaxies, including NGC 1032 near the right border in this image:

IC 342 is a large face-on spiral that would appear much brighter if if didn't lie in the galactic plane. Intervening dust makes IC 342 appear somewhat red:
