OK this is not me fishing for compliments. This is NOT false modesty. Let's be honest, this image of M81-M82 sucks. So an ASI 1600 at -15c on a WO 81, CGX and PHD2 running at around 1.3 total. 10x360s R, 10x360s G, 10x360s B, 10x120s Lum Astrodons. 20 darks, 20 flats, 20 dark flats per filter. Over what looked like 2 pretty clear nights. Processed in DSS and GIMP. That's 3 hours 20 min of exposure + 2 hours of darks, not including the 10x360 Lum and 4x360 Ha I didn't even stack coz it was trash. Now I know it's not M42 or Andromeda but is it really that hard?
