Hi, This is my first try at Andromeda with the SW Equinox 66, a SW LP Filter and an unmodded 1100D on an HEQ5 Pro with EQMOD. Camera controlled by EOS Utilities. PHD Guiding was with 50mm Finder Guider and QHY5. I used 14 x 5min subs with 4 dark and 22 flats. There would have been more subs if not for an unexpected meridian flip. Stacking was in DSS followed by (too much) PS processing. The LP filter controlled the light pollution but really extended the required exposure time. There are some interesting star shapes but no flattener could explain that. Apart from more data and better processing skills I am not sure where to go from here without spending a lot of cash. The most important thing was the great time I had collecting the data. Thanks for looking Barry
