Carpe Noctum

Mortal as I am, I know that I am born for a day. But when I follow at my pleasure the serried multitude of the stars in their circular course, my feet no longer touch the earth.

Lots of dust and debris in that one, glad I don't inhabit either of those galaxies! Very nice.

Just stumbled on your M51.

1/19/2018 I was setting up my FRC300 and shot L with STL11000! 5min.x 48 unguided. Will try to do guided RGB to add, when I can get my guiding to work.
