Here are some first 3-color frames based on pODI data.


a neighbor to our Milky Way and a slightly less massive spiral galaxy with plenty of star formation regions. pODIs excellent image quality even resolves the brighter stars in this galaxy.


some smaller regions zoomed in:

IC 342 – a low-surface rightness galaxy close to the plane of the Milky Way.


and again a few zooms into nice regions showing off pODI image quality:
