Another reprocessed image. I should have been out early tonight to take advantage of the rare clear weather, but my heart just wasn't in it. So nice and warm inside.....and soooo cold outside. LOL
M51, captured 7/19/09, 43 minutes. StarShoot II color, CG5 mount (unguided), 130mm Newtonian. Still blown out centers, but more even background.....a little more of the spiral arm halos.
