Description

Unbeliveably I never attempted the 2nd largest galaxy in the sky. Tried a mosaic long time ago but failed to put everyhting back together. So this is entirely new to me and therefore I somehwat underestimated ist surface brightness and thus the amount of imaging time to do this galaxy justice. Nevertheless, it's a good first try. Or so I hope.
