Best Whirlpool Yet...
I shot this with my Canon 300D at 1600 ISO, 6 four minute exposures total. Much better results than last time I tried this object. I did it with my Orion 100mm F6 achro refractor, guided with my Intes-Micro M500. Goes to show you can't count a scope out simply because it is an achro refractor and not an ED.
I used a newer version of software to process this image than the others below. It turned out much better than I was expecting.
