Southern Pinwheel August 2022

Posted by Evolved Inspired on Sunday, August 28, 2022

The Southern Pinwheel galaxy (M83) is found in the southern skies. It’s a pleasing target and despite an alomost full Moon I’m pleased with the first attempt at this target. I’m having some star bloat which is likely because I’m awaiting some extension tubes to get the backfocus between the .75 reducer and the QHY533c to 80mm.
