I was up early on the morning of March 1st and decided to open up MSRO StationOne for some quick imaging since the sky was clear. The seeing not so good. I decided to image M51 and here is the result. This is the first time I tried using the wavelet filtering function in Registax 6 on a deep-sky image. It turned out pretty well, I wasn't real aggressive with it.
