Attached is a 1/3rd size version of M101. See the link for the full size version. It is nearly a one megabyte file. I keep trying to count the HII regions but get lost as to which I've counted. In any case there are a lot of those pink spots of all sizes. There are a lot of faint fuzzies in the background as well. Now if seeing would have been a bit better...

14" LXR200, L=6x20' binned 1x1, RGB=2x10' binned 2x2, STL-11000XM, Paramount ME

Great shot of M101. Looks like a mimick of Vega in the back round stars?

I have always found M101 to be difficult to process well. You have done a very good job!

Thanks too all for the nice comments. I'm still learning CCD imaging which I started about a year ago.
