So, last night was great, no moon, no clouds, no wind!

This shot of M101 is my longest tracking and overall integration time of 22 shots, at 660" each, which brings me right to 4 hours. Even caught another DSO on the bottom right NGC 5474 which was a surprise

I used my Canon T2I full spectrum mod with EOS CCD-CLS clip in, Meade 8" SN, guided with SSAG on Orion Atlas. These were shot at 400 ISO.



Thanks for Looking

Thanks, really surprised how faint this guy was, still turned out great. One day I'll sneak off to a dark sight, when that happens I think I will cry and not sleep!

Awesome shot. Even looks like you have a few small, faint galaxies scattered around the image too.

Well done! I know from experience how hard this one is to capture.

Great processing job! I imaged this the other night, and I'm still trying to find time to process it. I was looking through my subs and thought I had a dust mote on my sensor, I didn't realize I got NGC 5474 also! I couldn't find it in Stellarium. It's a great find!
