STEVE MAC­DON­ALD, CYPRUS, 27-29 MARCH 2017

Sky at Night Magazine - - HOTSHOTS -

Steve says: “This an iconic galaxy that I never get tired of imag­ing. I was very pleased with the colours of M51 and the crisp­ness of the whirlpool that comes through. I par­tic­u­larly like the fram­ing on this as it also lets you see the num­ber of gal­ax­ies in the back­ground.”

Equip­ment: Mo­ra­vian In­stru­ments G2-8300 CCD cam­era, Sky-Watcher Evostar 80ED Pro re­frac­tor.
