Hi

 

This is my version of the Whirlpool Galaxy M51, using the IDAS filter and taken with the ASI071 OSC. Telescope was a C925 EdgeHD at f10. Mount is a CEM60.

Exposure: 4hr 50 min in total at unity gain (54 x 5 min). Full exposure details by clicking on the image.

 

Thanks for watching!

 

Regards,

 

Alfredo

Thanks Mike

 

Indeed it is. It’s a very good fit for the C925 EdgeHD because of the sensor size.

 

Regards,

 

Alfredo
