IC 10


Dan Crowson
 

IC 10 (UGC 192, PGC 1305, LBN 591 and others) is a dwarf, star-burst galaxy approximately 2.4 million light-years away in Cassiopeia. It is a member of the Local Group. This galaxy would be a lot brighter if it wasn't obscured by the dust in the plane of the Milky Way.

 

Luminance – 24x600s – 240 minutes – binned 1x1

RGB – 20:17:16x300s – 100:85:80 minutes each – binned 2x2

 

505 minutes total exposure – 8 hours 25 minutes

 

Imaged October 10th, 11th and 12th, 2020 from Dark Sky New Mexico at Rancho Hidalgo (Animas, New Mexico) with a SBIG STF-8300M on an Astro-Tech AT12RCT at f/8 2432mm.

That deep purple does tell me that there’s dust between us and IC 10.

Definitely looks like a dwarf galaxy (I just imaged the Draco Dwarf but it has no star-bursting).

The Draco Dwarf is dim and then some. That would be a great target with a fast scope and a lot of exposure time.

Dan,

 

It reminds me of IC 342. They both end up with that reddish tint and both would be much better if they were not behind all the gas and dust.

Looks nice!  Although from at home, not DSNM, I just finished an image of IC 10 as well.

Nice! This one is one of my favorites. I should point at it some more and add Ha.
