M51 - another test
Another short test, this time of M51 with the ASI1600MM-Cool (cooled to -15C). I shot a few more frames than of M13, but the seeing was poor unfortunately. The image contains 2000 frames x 1 second stacked in AS!2.
I'll probably try again sometime, or perhaps combine this result with my earlier M51 image that shows some more details (but much small FOV)

p.s. I used a cheap skywatcher coma corrector. Quite tricky to set up, but it does seem to work better. Perhaps a more expensive one can be justified at one point or another...
p.s.2 No filter was used
