The poor little M101 galaxy is a bit lost in this wide frame. Another go here with the 350D on the F5 8inch Skywatcher newtonian with the Baader MPCC giving a nice field. Lots of exposure but not the best result really.
M101 is always a funny lopsided galaxy and gives images a strange looking result
