M31 version 2, guiding test

This is the first test run of my finder guider set up on my Skywatcher 150PL and EQ3/2 Pro.

About an hour and a quarters worth of exposures at ISO1600 (just thought I'd try the higher ISO) with flats. darks and bias. About 30 minutes of 5 minute subs, the rest made up of 3 minutes and 1 minute subs.

It seems less noisy than my other M31 unguided attempt. Hopefully the images will get a bit better as I get use to the guiding system.
