I know everybody does M 51, well now we're everybody too! The image was taken at the beginning of April and represents only 6 hours of images. Each sub was only 5 minutes. Once again NO autoguiding at all.

You too can be taking images like this by renting time on our system. Go to our web page to learn more or just call us, phone number is in the top left corner!!!
