Fantastic effort there to take on such a dim little object but with a 150mm aperture and 1050mm focal length scope this Galaxy is a challenging object to image when you also factor in atmospheric conditions
At magnitude 11 brightness and angular size of 7 x 4 arc minutes it’s an object more suited for the bigger scopes with longer focal lengths to achieve better resolution and detail
I wouldn’t even attempt it with my 8” f5 unless seeing was pristine

Good on you for having a go

Well done !!!
