Description

A lovely face on spiral galaxy in Ursa Major. I found this hard to process - for some reason, the first couple of times I processed the colour was almost entirely absent, except in the bright star.

I finally managed to crack this by leaving it for two weeks, then trying again - I don't really know what I did differently!

However, it was worth it, I think.
