Description

I'm not quite finished with this yet, but I wanted to share because I'm so impressed with this camera/optic combination. I think I need a little Ha for the star forming regions in the arms/dust lanes. The bluish stars in the outer portion took no real coaxing to come out either... amazing, I can see stars in another galaxy..
