Data captured in one night 21/22 May. Processing in Pixinsight. Also included in the image, in order of apparent size, are galaxies NGC 4217, 4248, 4226 and pair 4231/4232. M106 is about 23 Mly away and NGC 4226 must be a large galaxy at 383 Mly.

I would like to collect some longer subs so that I can bring out more detail in the outer regions of M106.
