Description

Here is M81 and M82 - this is represents a lot of firsts. First light with Atik 460 + ZWO filter wheel, 36 mm Astrodon E series filter set. First time getting SGP to run everything. First processing ever of LRGB images. I can say I am happy. This is only 48 min of exposure, moon was ~90% full. Taken through an Orion ED80 with .8x flattener on AVX mount. SSAG guiding package. Processed in PI. I think I am going to like mono!
