First time dithering. No flats which added processing time to fix that. FL=560mm. About 5 hrs integration. Struggled to get any good color so went with this version. Overall pretty happy with it. Thanks for looking!

What ISO? How long were the subs?

 

Detail looks pretty good. I am hoping to get

these too.

 I have about an hour on M51, 85 min M101

20 min M106.

 

So much to shoot so little time!

 

Cheers

Nice job! Do you sometimes find that the color in your original image disappears when you move or post the image? I have had this happen several times.
