    Splendid image, Bill, and so sharp and detailed right down to the core! Makes me envious.

    Hi Bob,

    Yes "Edward, and Edwina" have flown and are now hanging around and rummaging for seed that the Cardinals and Bluejays leave. Mom and Dad are still around too

    BTW - After seeing some much nicer renditions of M101 the past few days I took another hard look at my image and noticed that were problems with it. A color shift towards magenta and some artifacts in the core. The color shift was very obstinate and I couldn't subdue it so I took a good look at the color stack and I found out that the green stack had some rather serious issues. Looked like it might have been bad data actually but that turned out to not be the case. I reprocessed this and ended up with a much cleaner green image and it made it look a lot better in my opinion.


    Here is the first one:

    And here is the second, hopefully much improved version.

    253mm f/9 RC @ 2276mm f/l. AP900 and ST10XME. 8x600s. All taken with ACP running the show.


    Best Regards
