Astrophotography – Imaging another galaxy – Messier 106

In July 2012 I already imaged M106 with my DMK31AU03.AS camera (no guiding). Now I wanted to try the same object with the Atik383L+ camera to see the difference.

There are additional galaxies around in that picture – NGC4248, NGC4231, NGC4232, NGC4217 and NGC4226! Here is a full resolution image which better shows the details of the image.
