Quote This picture of M81 is a lot better than my last try at M81, and is mostly thanks to the long exposure time (27 minutes). Even though the exposure was so long, the drifting was minimal (which can be seen as the border in the picture). I was however hoping for more details in the dust lanes in the galaxys arms. It's still an improvement than the picture of M81 before, and that is most important. Quote
