M81 / M82 – My First Real Go

I’ve managed to get some data of M81 and M82 recently, no idea how with all the cloud the UK has been having, but I did it!  This was my first attempt at processing in Pixinsight, using Harry’s tutorials which were invaluable to get started and to get to grips with Pixinsight.  Thanks Harry!  I will probably go back to the processing of this and keep doing it and trying different methods.

Anyway, here is the shot processed with Pixinsight.
