M81 And M82 mark 3 ISO 1600 (web)


M81 and M82 third attempt whilst trying to learn to use my camera, scope and tripod. This time tried 1600 ISO and 26 x 2 minute exposures plus 20 x darks/bias/flats.

I think this could have been better as the moon was still up for some of the first images in the stack.

ISO 1600 seems to work better at about 2 mins than ISO 800 on my equipment to my eye.
