I had decent skies last night. So I decided to take a crack at M51. This is one of my better astro images.

Details:
Scope: Edge 8"
Camera: T1i
Acquisition: BYEOS
Stacking: 24, 45s at ISO3200 in DSS.
Processed in PS6CS. Slight crop done, because I could not get rid of a nasty artifact.

As always thanks for looking!
