Description

I was browsing through Stellarium on what galaxy targets to shoot and M77 stood out with the bright and faint details. 

While I was able to get some of the brighter details back via Decon and HDRMT, the fainter regions I guess are suited for higher resolution scopes. Nevertheless, I am happy with the way this turned out.  

Hope you like this result! Clear skies!
