Hi All,

It's been a whole year since I last imaged properly. Moving house to blame! Anyway here is my attempt at Messier 81. Taken with a VC200L at F6.4, with Sbig ST8300M on a guided EQ6 mount. 3 minute subs all, Lum 87 mins; RGB each 45 mins with no binning. Stacked in DSS, processed in Pixinsight.

Thank you. A tad frustrating not being 'out there' but seeing all of the brilliant images and observing reports posted on here helped.

Cheers

Wow! And to think I was bowled over to see M81 as a faint smudge last week!

Hello again,

It has taken a few months but I have now at last got around to re-processing Bode. Here is my final effort. All image details as before.

Cheers

Thanks for the comments. Pixinsight is amazing but it does take a while to get used to some of the tools. I was pleased that I managed to tease Holmberg IX out. Although the background looks a bit blotchy I think that's a bit of the integrated flux nebula showing. More data would help, but it's time to move onto other quarry!
