Description

This is the first iteration of a new m81/m82 project that I have just started. My focus will be to bring out as much of the IFN as possible. This is about 9 hours out of a planned 40.

Next I will add some Ha with my new 2600mm to hopefully bring out some of that nice fiery detail in m82!

Processing advice always appreciated!
