This is my first attempt at imaging the galaxy M63. The exposures were taken on the 30th March 2016. The final image is composed from x85 40 second light frames taken at ISO 1600 plus x50 dark frames and x50 bias frames. 

The equipment used was a SkyWatcher Startravel 102mm refractor and Synscan alt-az mount with Canon 600D DSLR.

Images were stacked using DSS and the resulting master image processed using StarTools.
