M81 and M82

|Uncategorized|0 Comments

We had a few clear nights during this past week, and I was able to set-up and image for a few hours. I used 4.5 minute subs for this picture, which is the longest exposures I have ever used. I think I could go to about 5 minutes on a moonless night, but that’s probably it for my light polluted backyard. I desperatly need to invest in an IDAS clip-in filter for my Xsi!
