After the success of my first galaxies, the next night I headed out again, new target and tried longer exposures, and pretty much used up the camera battery on the one target taking around 60 x 120s exposures. After stacking them and rejecting some fuzzies, and then tweaking I ended up with what I thought was a reasonable outcome!

M63 Sunflower Galaxy

Smile | :)

It never ceases to amaze me at the shear numbers involved in these objects. Millions of lights away, thousands of light years in diameter and containing billions of stars.

One of my pals pointed out that of one of the pictures I caught the first night, when the light photon journey started travelling away from the target, dinosaurs were still on the Earth. OMG | :OMG: I had never really thought about it like that!
