M51 Lum. abt. 2 1/2 hrs, from Bortle 4 skies

Recommended Posts

Hello all

So I hied myself tither to my dark site after work on Fri., seeing as how clear skies were forecast, fought a few gremlins, and got away with about 2 1/2 hrs. of luminance on M51, about 14 10min. subs, 6 one min. ones and 4 30 sec. ones (for the core). It was a strange night, where everything went well on setup and guiding (between 0.3 and .15 w/ a guide scale of 1 to 4), but the image somehow didn't come out as well as I'd hoped.
