M51 with a bright Moon


Recommended Posts

Nice catch! The bright moon makes DS astrophotography near impossible, so it's great that you managed to capture this target.

You may have overstretched the image, and lost detail in the core of the galaxy.

Thanks for sharing

I don't think it's hugely over stretched (a bit in the cores, yes) but I'm sure the black point is clipped. Always go easy on bringing in the black point.
