Quote We didn't collect enough data to get a good picture of M101 but at least we (actually just Leif) found it! It's so small and dim! Next time we will capture this object with the LX200 and take a longer exposure (hopefully over two hours). For this picture Leif borrowed his fathers APO-lens which turned out to work really well!
