I have three hours about, of M81/82, and tonight is clear. I am going to pack up my rig and head to a dark-site. But, the prospect of imaging a different object is also looming. How do you balance that, desire to image something else, versus continuing to add data to a current image?
Incidentally, I really do enjoy imaging this target. It is also interesting to compare my three hours with my mono; and in December I imaged 5.5 with my OSC (ASI 294)..
Clearly I think that mono is winning out.

Top attachment is Bodes with mono, from last week.
Bottom is my first attempt at this object, one year ago. Can we stipulate Ballyhoo has made progress?
