M82 - Cigar galaxy
had a little trouble with post processing - while increasing saturation of the galaxy i also increased saturation of some of the stars - i toned some of them down but the bigger ones are a littel too much for my liking - i will have another go at processing when it is not xmas eve :)

Merry Christmas everyone
