M81 Group


Recommended Posts

The M81 Group of galaxies, 7th April 2023 near Preston, Lancs. One day after the full moon.

74x15s light frames, 26 dark frames and 23 bias frames. SW Evostar 72ED, Canon 600D, SW EQ5 GoTo mount.
Stacked in DeepSkyStacker, processed in Photoshop. Curve adjustments, saturation boost, minimum filter on the stars.

At least one decent image from an otherwise very poor season weather wise so far. A first venture into widefield for me and good to capture some detail despite the moon phase and small amount of frames with some stretching along the edges however. Certainly have to revisit this target when the weather and my four month son allow.

Thanks for looking.
