My M51 (plus a little something from the Nordic Optical Telescope)

Recommended Posts






Hi everyone - I've added approx 9 hours of data to my M51 image for a total of just over 12 hrs on this target. What really started to emerge is the extent to which the faint detail from M51a extends into space. I've also downloaded the raw FITS files for M51 from the Nordic Optical Telescope (NOT) on La Palma and had a go at processing their data in Pixinsight. Hope you like it 🙂
