M63, the Sunflower

I decided to try the Sunflower galaxy again, since it was one of the first deep sky objects I imaged with my Dobsonian and homemade tracking platform. Clouds held out a lot longer than were forecast, and the equipment kept giving me frustrations. The moon was also out most of the night, making the skyglow quite bad in my frames, increasing noise. I ended up getting a little over four and a half hours of data on it.
