buried lenses

  • shocko61 by shocko61

    I am having a lot of trouble spotting buried lenses even when I make the image bluer ,the lensed image looks like many other galaxies a bright spot in the middle and fuzzy star glow to the outer edges . Is there something I am missing or are these objects inherently very hard to find . I look for different colors in the fuzz and still cannot pick a lens .Ian shocko61

    Hey, I think you are doing the right thing by checking them in the blue setting. If you can't see the lensed images more apparent then there's nothing you can do, these will be inherently difficult cases. Please do use the zoom feature to get a better view, if you are not doing so already.
