Description

New M82 image with the ASI294MC imager and the 8" MN. Scale slighter larger than the previous one for M82 and I suspect a wealth of details more than the previous one. Even without dedicated H-alpha channel the HII jets are clearly visible, thanks to the L-PRO filter. Another thing worth of notice is that most of the shots were taken under Full Moon (or close enough to make no matter).
