M63, The Sunflower Galaxy

While this is only 5h 8m of total exposure time, I was able to get a decent amount of detail out of it.  When it clears up again, I’ll get some more time on it to reduce the noise level, but this is a nice start.  The exposures were taken on two nights a month apart:  Jun 2 and Jul 2.  It’s a total of 77 4-minute shots through an Astro-Tech AT8RC on a Celestron CGEM using a Canon Rebel XSi. The nights are short and hot this time of year, which makes it difficult on astroimaging!
