NGC 4236  is nearly as big as M81,  but much  fainter. The moon  tonight was about  80% illuminated, and made this more of a challenge.  ASI183MM Pro camera and an 8" f/4 reflector.  About 3  hours of RGB data, 1 minute subs at binx2.

Nice shot. this is a pretty low surface brightness object. You pulled it out well with an 80% moon.

Very nice image! You just don't see this surprisingly large object imaged very often.

You can see my image from a few days back here:
