m8220070215_6

M82 – with Meade ETX-80 and Meade DSI Pro in 2007. Probably the best picture I was able to obtain at the time and with that setup. Moreover, if memory does not fail me, this was a single 60s shot! I was then, and still am today, stupefied that the ETX-80 could track so well for so long, albeit just once.

M82-20190515-20-155x15s-720mm

Many years and much equipment later, M82 again, this time 155x15s exposures with Skywatcher MAK-90 and ZWO ASI 178MM on Skywatcher AZ-GTi.

M81-20190523-126x20s-720mm

And its companion, M81 aka Bode’s Nebula – 126x20s exposures with Skywatcher MAK-90 and ZWO ASI 178MM on the Skywatcher AZ-GTi.
