Hi everyone,

I was out collecting some light the day before yesturday. I got about 2 hours worth of data on m51. Sadly i forgot to switch to raw mode on the camera so the images were all in jpg.

Anyway heres my go, i still need to practice on editing :S I had hoped for some more colors in the galaxy instead of just this one.

excellent image

but m51 is a small target for such a telescope

watch for the double cluster for instance or some nebulosity in milky way

use google sky to resolve Field of View for your telescope

Nice image have done that jpeg not raw thing so many times now I allways check it in backyard eos before I start as its easy to do and such a pain when you realize what you have done.

Yea i know, but with nebulae im always in doubt. Ring nebula and dumbell are both quite small for a 80ed, but with other nebulae im not sure if the scope is big enough to get any good data with. I clearly need reflecting and emission nebulae since i dont have my camera modded. I will try one next time, which one i dont know yet :( I have thought about the double cluster and is also one of the objects i want this summer,
