Description

Hi everyone,

so this is my take on M63. I think the seeing was pretty good when I took this data, so I believe this is about as close to the maximum resolution I can get with my little scope. I originally had some troubles when editing but today, since I warmed up to true color images again it turned out well enough for me to upload it here.

I plan to always upload a wide field version, an annotated version and a cropped version for those types of shots. I'm not exactly sure what the community prefers.

Thanks for having a look!
