M81 and M82 from my back garden.

this was more of an exercise to make sure my alignment was good, and tightening up my setup time, as i've not really had any chance this year to get out with the mount.

32x1 minute Exposures
Stacked in DSS and cleared up in PS.

Equipment used was

Skywatcher Star Adventurer
Nikon D750 (unmodded)
Sigma 150-600 lens@ 600mm.


Hopefully up near snake pass this weekend, so may find some darker sites around there on Saturday (apparently a clear night).
