M31 - Andromeda Galaxy

M31 Andromeda Galaxy, taken using LRGB filters. No Moon, but heavy light pollution and a battle with dew. Plenty of tracking problems, the LX90 mount is showing the effort of tracking is this much equipment with a lot of errors. But I'm relatively pleased with the result. I have fine tuned the Orion ST80 and the end results seem very much improved over previous efforts so it looks like the hard work has paid off.

Let me know what you think.

ST80? Brilliant work.

Many thanks. Yes I found some advice on various pages that gave some ideas on how to improve the ST80, £20 and a few hours work later I have a very much improved telescope. This was the first imaging run with the modified version and I'm delighted with the results for a scope that I was only ever going to use for auto-guiding. In fact it has made me completely re-think some of my approach to AP.
