M51 test image.

Here's a test image of M51 using my new home made auto-guiding technique. It was produced from 8 x 1 minute exposures. No flats, darks or biases. Not very good seeing, not very dark either. Looks promising though, all I need are some nice clear dark nights and about 100 more exposures ;-)

Here's the real thing from Hubble.
