M81 M82


Bode's Galaxies M81 and M82
Approximately 12 light frames, darks and bias, no flats
Light frames 300 secs at ISO800
Equipment: Skywatcher 150P on tracking EQ3-2, Pentax K20D (without long exposure noise reduction)
Stacking and processing Pixinsight 1.8 (using Richard Bloch's Youtube tutorial as a guide).
Generally too few frames and darks that weren't optimized, so still a lot of noise in the final image.
