M81 - Bode's Galaxy.

Recommended Posts

I wish I could say I took this last night, but it's from February last year! The weather has been so bad, that I have been re-processing old data.

I was never happy with the colour in my original image, so have been experimenting with Siril and Deepskystacker. 

I thought that Siril produced a better image, but after playing with settings and comparing the two, I ended up with a nearly identical version using DSS, which is so much easier to use.

Stretched in Nebulosity, star mask subtracted using Starnet++ and final tweaking in Photoshop.

44 x 240s lights, 25 flats, 12 darks, 25 bias.

Total exposure time: 2h 56m.
