Pushing the limits with the little 80mm.

Widefield with m81, m82 always gets blown out.

Thought I'd give it some love and see what would happen.

Exactly as expected. I need a bigger scope.

 

Around 6.5 hrs. total of 120's and 180's.

Doesn't it look like m81 is spitting a string of stars out of it's core? 

 

Peace.

At least you have an actual telescope...this is all I could get using my $259 ,  80mm spotting scope in 2-1/2 hrs

 

 

You can see how bad it is in this nearly 100% crop of M81
