M51 Whirlpool Galaxy

Taken last Saturday as my first test image on the EQ6 mount. The setup comprises a Meade LPI camera acting as an Autoguider through my 6" f/5 refractor, with the mount in PC-Direct Mode, operating with PHD Guiding software - very straightforward.

8 x 5 minute exposures @400ISO
