I have taken just a few photos of M51. You would almost have to call them snapshots. What I noticed in my photos and other folks M51 photos is the blooming stars that are not part of the galaxy. The HST photos have no blooming stars for obvious reasons. I would really love to get my photos looking a little more Hubble like, and I was wondering if anyone does editing to remove the blobs, and still get a good image. My only other alternative is to keep taking M51 shots until I get a night with exceptional seeing.
