My requsted COAST image


Dear Sir

After a week I received my requested images which was from The Whirlpool Galaxy and The Blackeye Galaxy but what I have is a black blank page ! I even can't find a tiny bright dot on the page, absolutely nothing in the page. (attached  pics)

The thing is there is no request numbers (like what the others refers to) and it 

just shows requested date and time which is 21:11:20 12/01/2021 and 21:10:35 12/01/2021

Can you please take a look at these images and let me know why there is

nothing in the pages?

Thank you

Thanks for asking about these images.  There is probably detail there, but you may need to adjust the levels.
