     I've always liked this field around M106. Lots of extra galaxies to peek at. Galaxy season is

upon us so thought I'd give it a shot. This is 6.35 hours total. 127x180" lights, 25ea. of flats, darks and dark flats.

ASI294mc pro, SVX102T, SFFX flattener, UV/IR filter. Processing... Siril, Photoshop, Graxpert, Starnet.

     Thanks Adriano and Freddy for the compliments. I'm finally getting some clear nights.

Galaxy season is always a challenge for me. I'm going to have to start using my 8" SCT

to gain some image scale.

 

Best Regards...

Ed
