This fine edge-on galaxy is a popular target and I was keen to try the Artemis camera on it. The image turned out a little more red than intended. I could not get a good balance either manually or with IRIS.

Captured in Artemiscapture. Stacked in Registax, co-registered and scaled in IRIS, finally processing and multiple L layering in photoshop. 2x2 binning used on the colour exposures.
