Reworked M51
Lens: RC6 Camera: K3II Photo Location: Pritchard BC ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: Above 6s Aperture: F9

A break from snowflakes, perhaps until next season. Weather has warmed up and unless Feb has an abnormally colder day, I doubt it'll drop enough for good crystals, but never know.
I bought PixInsight as a christmas present this year. I have been re-working some old data to get to learn it and this is M51 re-worked. The colour of the galaxy is better and I have better star colours overall in this version, but the previous version made it into the Planetary Society Jan issue. If you're a subscriber, have a look!

Beautiful work from tiny crystals to the vast universe. Looking forward to more. Thanks for sharing the beauty.

Thanks! Yeah the irony isn't lost on me Both require strong magnification of different kinds.

Also wonder why I've let my two main muses rely so much on the weather...

You will at least be guaranteed breaks. My son and I used to get together with our telescopes frequently. Cloudy nights were always a problem. Good luck with the weather.

Fabulous! The only galaxies I can easily find in the southern sky other than our own are the clouds of Magellan.

yeah we get a lot of galaxies up here in the north, but you guys have some of the best nebulae not to mention a larger band of the milky way. Even at the height of the season, the core only just pops up over the horizon here.

Every time I go to the northern hemisphere, I marvel that people could come up with all the traditional constellations with so few stars in the sky!
I'm not complaining about the marvellous southern skies.

Haha! well maybe that's why they could! Man when it gets dark in my bortle 3, I can't make out Cassiopea at all. It's super difficult to come up with any patterns for me.
