10/26/03 Edge-on Spiral Galaxy NGC891

My second color galaxy, taken on 10/19/03, edge on spiral NGC891 is a beauty but my image doesn't do it justice. Dewing caused severe problems with my green and blue channels. This is one I definitely need to work on. The coma noted in my last post was due to collimation. I have been adjusting it quite a bit over the last couple of weeks, still needs work. I find that what looks perfect visually is noticeably off when it comes imaging time.
