    I've had a time with the weather here in the Carolinas , data collection , mount issues and just plain ole forgetting what I'm doing at times due to having to take pain dope to cope. Critique away , I can only get better with my Po man imaging rig. color 4-18-19 finished combined 65L 35RGB WB.jpg

    I'm using an Lxd55/8" f3.9 astrograph/ Asi174MM cooled /mini 5 position efw/Tv cc/ and guiding with a qhy5 ll m / 50mm mini w/ helical focuser. It's old and worn out , pushing the max cap. hopefully it'll last a bit longer . It's still a work in progress .

    Your image is very nice. I can see well defined spiral arms and dust lanes, and everything is sharp. Well done. Thank you for posting your work.

    Median m81 Lrgb 60s 67subs Deconvolved 01.jpg I added a stack of 60s lum I just captured , added it to my color and this is what I have so far. The background needs work , I couldn't resist posting this. No calibrations added all processing.
