Messier 64 or the Evil Eye Galaxy! Imaged last night with the Celestron C8 at f 3.6 and the Altair GPcam V2. 9x300secs +1x800secs. Half of those were through the blue filter as I misread my filter wheel. :? Should have gone to specsavers! :shock: It still came out not bad though. :)

Nice detail in there Brian. Apparently, the dark streak is a galaxy that's being cannibalised by M64.

Thanks Brian. Yes I believe that is the case.
