Here's another capture from last night.  See the others for capture details.  The night was waning fast so I dropped my exposure count to 120 30s exposures.  I was starting to fight dew that formed on the scope while I was napping.  My M-51 lost nearly 1/2 the exposures to dew.

Still a nice capture. I'll add that one to my target list!

What equipment and aquisition details?
