First galaxy - M83 :)

Hi All,

Here is my first ever snap of a galaxy, M83. Boy did I let out a squeal when those arms popped out as I tweaked the levels The bug has definitely bit me! (Also fallen into the money pit )

12 x 45s unguided @ iso800 with 2 darks ( battery died on the 3rd!)
Slowly getting my head around drift aligning and pushing my exposures out just a little bit each night. Pretty happy to be at 45s
Although I'm till not happy at all with my optics putting a damn halo around my stars, but you get that I suppose.

Thanks for looking!
