Imaging M51 Whirlpool Galaxy

Great to be back imaging again!

Located around 24 Million Light Years away in the constellation Canes Venatici, this target is actually a pair of colliding / interacting galaxies and provide a good sized target to image with the Rasa11.

In this video I also take another look back and compare the latest capture with the one I first took of this target 2 years ago, in May 2020 (which was just a few just weeks into this hobby).

The image below was the one from the session.

Clear Skies!
