This image of M101 was captured over the four nights of 15th, 23rd, 24th and 25th March 2020.  

A total of 75x600-second light frames were captured.  The Nightscape 10100 TEC was set at -10C. An Optolong L-Pro filter was used.  The L-Pro filter is a luminous filter that blocks typical light pollution wavelengths and provides an IR cut-off.

Image capture was controlled with SGP-Pro software.

Image calibration, integration and processing carried out with PixInsight.
