Hi All,

 

Clickbait.... or who would click on another "M51" topic title lol.gif

 

This image is a new rendition of Messier 51 (aka NGC 5194) with new RGB data and combined with luminance and Ha data from 2018.

Thanks for watching!

 

Bart

Nicely captured and presented.

 

BTW, I still would have looked if it had been that mundane target M51.
