M51 - Whirlpool Galaxy

March 16, 2018 - 30 subs @90 sec 800ISO Nikon D90. No darks, no flats, 20 bias. Explore Scientific 127ED. Astrophotography Tool, PHD2 guiding. Urban Victoria, no Moon, average seeing and poor transparency (LVM 4.5). This is my first attempt at this galaxy; even with 45 minutes exposure very difficult to pull out the details and lots of noise.
