Here is my M51 in 20 minutes. It was a little chilly out so I didn't think I was going to stay out long. With the cooler weather I decided to push the subs to 10 minutes just to see what would happen. I was expecting a noisy mess but I think it came out ok.

Subs: 2x600

Thanks for looking.

Very cool Erskin. It's nice to see what 60DA can do.

Thanks everyone.

I have really enjoyed the 60Da. Makes me wish I would have shot a few calibration frames.
