Quote This (I think) is a great improvement over my last try, most thanks to that I took more exposures. I'll think I'm pretty satisfied with M82 for now, and will only try to capture it once I have a better camera. The colors came out well and the image is sharp. The black area above the galaxy is there because the CCD-chip had dust on it during capture, I must clean it! Quote
