Tilting at a Windmill

I've imaged this object, M 82, many times but have never produced an image that I'm pleased with. I keep coming back for more tries, though. I'm like a dog that keeps chasing a car. Plus some recent images posted here by Adam Block, Enrico Africa, and others have inspired me to keep tilting at this windmill.
This is my latest, though not my last, effort.

Hi Dan,

That really is a nice M82. Nice dark nebulae detail.

Beautiful detailed image Jose!

Wonderful job! The detail down the core is incredible.
