    I've been working on this for 2 months , this is what I've got so far this year. 602 subs LRGB from 20s to 60s and it's starting to come together. Here's the cropped version. M 81 color 03  5-11-19.jpg

    I like the detail of the galaxy in your image.

    Thank you Ed , I finally got my mount worked out and I shoud have longer exposures on the next target. This is 602 subs in lrgb but, the "Rose is blooming with detail " the blue tint that I tried didn't do well. color M81 4-18-19 .jpg

    Woohoo! That's a mighty fine image there. Nice detail in the core and dust lanes.

    Reggie :D

    Thank you Reggie , the Asi174MM cooled to -10c can really pull the detail with adequate guiding. I do what I can with what I have as long as the weather is cooperating. I started on m101 and lil' 23subs @60s for 2 nights battling clouds that messed my guiding up. I took 50minutes but, 1/2 were image shift.
