M82 - The Cigar Galaxy
This is my first attempt with the newly acquired ZWO ASI1600MM-P monochrome CMOS cam. While this is a fairly common northern skies object, this image is the starter for the 2020 galaxy season. And the Explore Scientific ES102 has been replaced with the Celestron C925 EdgeHD to chase down some smaller DSO's. More galaxies to come :).
