Pinwheel Galaxy M101

Pinwheel GalaxyData acquisition by Jim Misti

I processed this image with PixInsight using borrowed (with permission) raw LRGB data provided by Jim Misti. I used the HDRWavelets tool to bring out the delicate brown dust lanes and the ATrousWavelet tool for noise reduction on both luminance and RGB images before combining.
