Andromeda (M31)

RichLD

Never had much luck with this target, however last night (11/09/2016) the conditions were quite good what with the moon setting around midnight, relatively clear skies and M31's position in the sky. I managed to get 8x600s subs before the clouds rolled in - considering the relatively short integration time I'm quite pleased with the result and plan to grab more data as and when possible.

Shot under dark skies from Surprise View Car Park in Derbyshire with QHY8L, SWED80, HEQ5, Orion SSAG. Processed in PI and PS.

Thanks for looking!

Hi Rich, 

Really, really nice photo.

I'm a long way from doing anything like that.

It sets me something to aim at!!

Thanks very much for your kind words Steve, I really appreciate them!

I've haven't had much luck with this target in the past (this is my fourth crack at it), probably due to my attempts to capture it when too low in the sky. Dark skies really help too!

Cheers and clear skies

Rich
