Celestron Fastar 8 at f/1.95, PixCel 237. This 12 minute exposure consists of a 720 second luminance file (four by 180 seconds Track and Accumulate). Unguided at -12.89 degrees Celsius. Post processed with CCDOPS v4.10, and combined in Adobe Photoshop. Dwingeloo 1 is a highly obscured galaxy (hidden by our own Milky Way) located in the constellation Cassiopeia. I experimented with capturing this elusive galaxy, and was not very successful. About all I managed to image was the core, but part of the spiral arms can be seen here. It can be found at 02h 56' 51", +58 degrees 54.7'.
