Its amazing but now put in the 5 x barlow and try to pick up the globular cluster G1 which is below the bright star to the left of M32 in your image.

Superb!! Really great, if I'm honest I prefer it to today's AAPOD

Can I ask why bin2x3 though?

Probably the best M31 I've seen this year.... really stunning. I'm looking forward to giving this some time through my Meg72 once I get the guiding sorted!

Intentse colours and wonderful detail in the dust lanes. I'm not a fan of HDR but I think you've shown a good degree of retraint with it.

Wonderful image, maybe a bit over bright but that could be my monitor?
