I had a poor seeing attempting the famous M1 last year, so i decided to take a new shot at it.
Still not the best night i ever had, fighting against cirrus and fog ; i was only able to keep 2h of exposures. However, that's an improvement for sure.

I added an UHC filter as well to bring out the crispy details :)
