First Attempt at M51


Recommended Posts

The recent run of clear skies gave me the opportunity to shoot M51 for the first time. I left the rig running over night, so I was able to capture about 80x5 minutes subs, to give a total integration time of about 6.5 hours. Calibrated with flats, darks and bias frames.

The focal length of the Evostar 80Ed is not ideal for these galaxies, but even so I'm quite happy with the result.

CC welcome as usual
