Here is my attempt to extract galaxy IC 342 through the dusty disk of our home galaxy. It is located in the constellation Camelopardalis, about 10mly distant. Since the galaxy is obscured by dust it requires long 10min exposures to reveal any details. This image was created from about 13 hours of exposures through Luminous, Red, Green, & Blue filters.
