Bright Spiral

Messier 99 is easily visible this time of year, situated in constellation Coma Berenices. It was one of the first objects to be identified as a spiral.

I used Lightbuckets and a standard RGB filter with a 60 second exposure for each. Imported into Maxim for stacking and screen stretching. Not as nice as I would have hoped. Maybe I just missed something in Maxim.
