Description

Just from my picture I realised that the nickname fits this beauty!

I like it very much, as it stands up high on my sky and because of it's size, which makes a good target for my setup.

Unfortunately the seeing in that perticular night went from poor to horror, which heavily affected my guiding. But I was astonished that the final does show some nice details in the core and arms. Albeit they burned out very fast with a 10" f4 I had quite some work with reprocessing, meaning that my 5-min-procedure has to been extended ;-)

Revision B shows you a crop.

Hope you enjoy it, too!

Take care everyone!
