M94 final

I went out to find M101 and failed AGAIN, so I turned my attention to M51 since my other target that evening was obliterated by the moon, I scanned around with a low power wide view eyepiece and after some time came across this little guy, I knew it wasn't M51 but since I had it in my sights I thought i'd image it anyway, I only managed just less that 30 mins before cloud spoilt my play time however I was excited to get it processed so I could find out what I had caught, it was a [removed word] to focus since there were no bright stars in the area to conveniently slew to so I had to take a few shots and guess my best focus, anyway after consulting my star atlas I found it was M94 based on the layout of the surrounding stars.

lights = 57 @ 30 sec each = ~30 mins

darks =20

flats =20
