Since the night was good, and it was weekend I extended my activities to look for some galaxies. Looked for Pin-wheel galaxy and Whirlpool galaxy but couldn’t find either. So I went to Bode’s and Cigar Galaxy.
Bode’s Galaxy and Cigar Galaxy (M81 and M82)
Crop 1:1 post-processed
Focal Length: 300 mm
Total exposure: 128s
Taken Jul 14th, 2013 around 01:00 CEST
On the bottom M81 and in the top M82. Another galaxy showed up in the picture NGC3077 but it was very faint and I cut out in the crop. I liked a lot this picture, specially for the M82, that looks quite nice =D
The M81 still can’t see the spirals, need longer exposures for that I believe.
