first DSO image (Blue Mountains)

I believe this represents my first attempt at a deep sky object image.

Between the ISS passes, with the MallinCam attached to the Tele Vue 101, I demonstrated to Tim how the setup worked. We visited some DSOs.

And then settled on Messier 51, the Whirlpool.

Tele Vue 101, MallinCam Hyper Color. North is bottom-right; east is bottom-left.

Tim and I thought it looked fair on the monitor. It does not seem as good on the PC. Is that because I'm using the BNC port and component vs. S-video?
