M64 - Messier Object 64 -Black Eye Galaxy
aka: the "Sleeping Beauty galaxy"

M64 is in Coma Berenices, the middle of Deep Sky territory.  SEDS has more info on M64, as usual.  I replaced my previous Nikon D100 image with this new one in 2008.  22x4 minutes = 88 minutes total exposure. 1/31/2008 at the HAS site near Columbus.  Canon EOS 20Da (unmodified), Takahashi TOA 130 (a 5" APO refractor) with Tak flattener, and Astro-Physics AP 900GTO mount  My current image processing workflow is here.
