Description

M 51 or the Whirlpool galaxy. This image was captured a while ago during the summer of 2022.
I had experimented with this galaxy really early on in my astrophotography journey but this is much better with a whole new dataset.
I used both OSC RGB and OSC + Optolong LeNhance filter data.
