Astrophotography combines some of my major passions in life: mathematics, astronomy, computers ... and buying gadgets!

I finally got around to take an image of M82 with its supernova SN2014J. Taking images of galaxies (especially small ones like M82) from my backyard is still a major challenge to me. The light pollution and all the gradients make it really hard to create a good image.
It's fascinating that this one single star outshines the entire galaxy!
This image consists of 80x30sec Luminance and 90x20sec RGB (each) subimages.
