Andromeda Galaxy Lightwave 66 Neilspikes

Last night being a lovely night, I decided to try out my new aquisition -Altair Astro Lightwave 66mm refractor on my Staradventurer mount. Had a great time and took some images with my Canon 600d DSLR. Probably need to have the camera modded and a field flattener but cannot justify the expense. Reworked data with guidance and software help from Olly and Neil Carboni's actions 30/10/2015. By the way I succumbed to the allure of a field flattener from Altair Astro which should work on both my refractors. Cant wait to try it but will have to as I sprained my ankle in the dark last night.
