M 82: Deep Sky Photo with the iPhone 6


M 82 the Cigar Galaxy taken with the iPhone 6! M 82 is 12 million light years away located in Ursa Major.

I’m learning some new things. This is a re-edit of a previous stack of M 82 frames.

I captured this image in my backyard in the middle of town with lots of light pollution. The sky and conditions, however, were pristine. Calm, clear, and no moon. And it was cold, around 15*F.
