Producing PR Images
One of the best ways to promote our observatory is showing superb astronomical images obtained using the ING telescopes. For this reason we encourage observers to take good PR images. Full credit will be given to the authors of the images.
Images of Messier objects potentially useful for our collections found in the ING archive are:
M2, M8, M10, M17, M23, M34, M39, M44, M49, M52, M59, M61, M67, M71, M72, M77, M78, M79, M80, M84, M85, M86, M88, M89, M91, M94, M102, M108, M110.
These images should be de-archived, reduced and if the result isn't good enough then it can be added to the current lists of targets.

If you obtain a nice reduced image, please contact the ING PR Officer (email at the bottom) and provide with the following information:
1: Observers who carried out the observations and the names of the people who reduced the data, if any. Please include email addresses.
2: Including identification numbers.
3: Including average seeing on each filter.
4: Including calibrations.
If you already have got a nice image which you think can be part of our PR collections please don't hesitate to contact us. TIFF and DIN-A4 size at a resolution of 300 dpi are desireable.
