Description

M51, shot in South France @ a dark area (Camping Les Matherons) with an unmodded Nikon D5100 @ ISO800 on a Stellarvue 102ED, HEQ5pro, SSAG guiding. No filters or calibration shots were used.

Also, this is my first image where I used Pixinsight. Needless to say: its highly recommended.
