That's a brilliant and natural looking image. I think your technique works, the stars have kept their colour and are not bloated and the galaxies look really detailed and natural. You should record how you did the processing :grin:

Nicely done Simon,

Certainly very natural looking galaxies, you probably do not like saturated colours.

I'm wondering after 17 hours and at f/4.5 would not background start to reveal some IFN or is it hard to expect with ISO 200?

Wow, very impressive!

Would also love to hear what processing those images went through.

Would that require a different approach to processing?

I found this impressive view of the IFN for those that are curious:

Amazing shot! The only change i'd consider making is that by slightly altering the contrast, you could make the background completely black

thats pretty damn good for a dslr and i'd be very happy indeed if mine were half as good.

That has to be the best DSLR version I have ever seen of M81 /82 by far

What ever your doing keep doing it.

Top stuff.
