M101

M101 The Pin Wheel Galaxy. A classic spiral galaxy in Ursa Major (Big Dipper). This is the result of 2hrs of images. It really needs several nights to improve the signal to noise and better conditions but I am pleased with it. Its surprising what can be done with a small scope.

M13, my deepest image yet

M13 the great cluster in the constellation of Hercules. You can also see a nice little galaxy off to the left. Not bad for my first serious attempt after 2+yrs. I've imaged this several times in the past but this is the best one yet.
