A small crop from the whole frame of M82 showing hints of the H-alpha emission from tidally distubed gas emerging from the core. This was a combination stack from two nights totalling 73m 00s. The DSLR camera is modified to possess extended red sensitivity. All subs were at 3200 ISO, mainly of 6s duration.
