M106 in Canes Venatici

M106 in Canes Venatici
This is a golden horseshoe collaboration between Stef and I. We call it Franken-Galaxy because of the varied gear at different focal lengths used and shot from two different locations. In total, there is 19 hours and 40 mins of data collected. I used a C6 @ f10 with my QHY-8 on a CGE mount and he used a Vixen VC200L @F9 with a ST10XME on a Tak EM200. Having that much data really helps overcome our less than ideal shooting locations and mediocre seeing.
