Last night, I went out and did a few hours of imaging. The first image I took was of M81 & M82 again. I had the scope well aligned and the stars didnt streak, until I went over to Leo for the trio of galaxies. I had to shorten the frames to 1 minute. Even so, the image came out pretty good actually. This image has only 20 minutes of exposure.
The 2nd attempt getting M81 & 82 is here. This image has over an hour of exposure time, 23 frames each 3 minutes at iso 800.
I believe this one came out better than my last attempt. It should, being we had a moonless night.
