M81 Bode's Galaxy For Web

Again, still trying to work out how to do everything so just test shots really. Spent no more than 15 minutes on this. I think I caught M82 in the top right by accident.

Nice round stars, :) - can i ask if your stacking lights or or using calibration frames?

I'm just learning everything at the moment. This one was done with about 10 lights, 10 darks of the same length, 10 flats and 10 bias. Don't know if that's right or not but seems to have worked. The longest light frame was 3 mins. Most were much shorter. Then just played with levels in Photoshop to get it right.
