M81 - RC8

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Although not as much data as I would have liked, I'm going to call this one 'finished' for now. Maybe I'll add some Ha at some point, but I'm itching to try a new target.
I've had the RC8 for a few months now, and between the clouds I only managed about 6 hours of decent-ish data. 

I had high hopes for getting some more nice data last night, but the secondary mirror on the RC8 had dewed over and I didn't notice until late, so I didn't use much of it.

It's a bit over processed and I've not got a decent way to produce flat frames for this scope yet, but I'm quite happy with the result.
Bit of a steeper learning curve coming from the ED80!

3hrs Lum
1hr each RGB
Processed in Pixinisights


Cheers, Matt
