This is a 7 hour exposure of the M74 galaxy using a astro full specturm modded Canon 40D DSLR through a IR Cut filter. The image is taken with a Celestron 8" SCT at F6.3 through a focal reducer(1280mm focal length). The image consists of mostly 450s subs and approximately 1 hours of 120s subs, all at ISO 800. This galaxy is located at about 30 Million Light years distance from us, at for a magnitude 10 object it did seem like quite a faint object to image, this could be due to the it's low altitude throughout the whole exposure and a little bit of city light pollution in that part of the sky.
