5/03/03 Spiral Galaxy M81

A delicate spiral galaxy, tough to image because it has a very bright core and very dim arms. My laptop died after 75 minutes (I was going for a full 120). Next day it works great, go figure. I didn't realize how huge this thing is, next time I'll have to rotate the camera, it's off center and a bit clipped in this shot.
