What a difference an hour makes - M101

Recommended Posts

Last night I managed to get 89 X 60sec unguided exposures of M101. I'm pretty happy with the result to! The extra time certainly lifts more detail out of the noise floor - and what a cool galaxy! Anyway here it is:

I would certainly be very happy with a result like that.

BTW: Did you crop this or is it full frame?

I cropped it quite a bit - the full image is 3888 pixels across and the galaxy bit is about 2000 across - so it's about a quarter of the entire frame.

Like it :(, one thing I'm noticing and quite enjoying about imaging is the little things you wouldn't have a hope of seeing normally. I think I see something either side of M101?
