The third object I shot during the night of Jan-2nd to Jan-3rd. Also, my first attempt to shoot unattended. After setting the parameters and the started the sequence, I went to sleep. However, during the night, some clouds came in and did hide the galaxy, so I had to sort these pictures out. My attempt was to do 180 lights with 90 seconds each, but only 137 were useable.

M101 – Pinwheel Galaxy



I will try using a regular Nikon teleconverter next time which will allow for smaller objects with higher resolution. Whether the quality is good enough then, I will see.
