About this image

This is a stack of 40 three-minute images taken over a two hour period on the night of 11-12 March.  Conditions weren't ideal but M109 was high in the sky compensating for patchy hazy cloud at times. Also on the far top left of the image I picked up magnitude 15.4 galaxy UGC 6969.
