M51 with Mallincam DS16C and F/4 Newt
Last night blended decent seeing with a dark sky (very little light scatter). It seemed a good night to image some DSOs with the DS16C--a very sensitive, low-noise camera from Mallincam. The DS16C works very well with the Mallincam F/4 Newt and this image is the result. It's a little noisy, but not too bad for a minimally-processed short exposure stack of 10x30-seconds.
