A HALF HEARTED M 51

Recommended Posts

Not all that happy with this one , but really was a test piece with the ED 80 to get focus using an extension tube , seemed to work ok , the image is still rather small , quality wise, the moon did not help with this really , subs were not many about 26 i think at 90secs, processed in Maxim, and binned 2x2 , Atik 16hr used, with the CLS filter, ED80 on the HEQ6 SKYSCAN.

Not bad I guess Rog :) For once, I have to say that the spikey star adds to the pic. It breaks my heart to admit it though :lol:
