The Whirlpool Galaxy M51 from Fort Davis

A better view of the Whirlpool Galaxy, M51, in the dark skies of Fort Davis, Texas. Again in my short focal length scope like William Optics RedCat 250/51mm. This time only a UV/IR filter was used. Seeing was poor with an approaching front, which clouded up the skies at about 3:30 AM.

Shot starting 2022-04-07 02:54 UT with the RedCat 250/51 mm telescope, Baader UV/IR cut filter, and ZWO ASI 533 MC camera. Stacked and processed 60 3 minute exposures in PixInsight, StarExterminator, Topaz DeNoise, and Photoshop.
