Whirlpool Galaxy (M51) Final

First galaxy of this season. I've been wanting to capture M51 for awhile now so I'm pretty stoked it turned out as well as it did, even though I stripped out so much detail bumping up the black to hide the noise. About 3 hours worth of data. I may collect more as the season goes on and add to it.
