My first frames of M101. No calibration frame, just combine and stretch.

The LP to my north is horrible, I need to find another spot to shoot objects that are generally north of me. The funny thing is that the ocean is about 1 mile to my north, but the hospital next door is killing me, the shore would be much better.
