Description

The beautiful M51 @ Sternwarte Mirasteilas.

This image is (and has been officially) dedicated to my wife and family.

I forgot to post it on Astrobin and accidentally deleted the raw images.

So my vague guess is, that this image included approximately 5 -6 h LRGB data.

Mysterious ....
