last image of my CDK 12,5" from France before his departure for the Atacama Desert...
Aborted seance cause of weather and some problems of mount.
Not enough time but I would present it like my last image form France with this scope.

the target is the well known M63 - the Sunflower galaxy.

I have to make a Supra-Luminance with all the LRGB with FWHM between 1.9 and 2.7.
