Good morning all,
these are my shots of M82 and M81 galaxys taken over a month with an Astro-Physics 180mm refractor and KAF 16803 camera. Location north-east of Italy. 15 hours in LRGB eeach.
For the H-alfa I took dedicated images with an astrodon Ha 3nm filter. Especially for M82, this meant 90 hours to be able to have good and deep details in the Hydrogen filaments. Hope you will like.
