Messier 101 - the Pinwheel, with SN2023 ixf

Messier 101 - the Pinwheel, with SN2023 ixf

This is my first stab at the data we acquired May 19 using the Plaskett 1.8m telescope. Excitingly, SN2023 ixf, that started the same night, is in the field.

There are some challenges with the flats that have lead to colour shifting across the field in this version. 29x30s gPrime, 16x30s rPrime and 16x30s iPrime for a total of 31.5 minutes of exposure. Calibrated with bias, dark and flat frames.
