A quick Andromeda. Don't look at Bob's for comparison and I might get away with it!

M52 and bubble nebula. Need more focal length on this one.

I didn't use a scope, this was a camera lens. Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 OS HSM. There's probably some more random letters in the full name...

Whadya mean "don't look at Bob's". :grin:

Great work. Must add the Bubble to my To Do list but there never seems to be enough time with the weather we have to endure!

Bob.

This was guided on EQ6. Lens at 300mm f/2.8.

Bob, your recent take on it got many comments along the lines of "best ever", and I'm a loooooong way off that!

Bubble is definitely on my revisit list, but needs a lot more focal length and I'm not sure my alignment and guiding is 100% up for that yet, especially as the speeds go down with longer focal lengths...

      My M31. Shot over 3 nights. Only 11 total hours. LRGB only with Astrodon filters, ZWO ASI1600MM-C camera, and the WO Redcat.

      The bubble nebula. Not much to add about the target itself as it is already popular enough.
      A combination of HOO shot with the ASI1600MMC + Astronomik narrowband filters through the 200mm newtonian tube removed from the dobson base and put on the EQ6-R.
      About 6h of exposure through the Oxygen filter and about 9h through the Hydrogen filter.
      Clicking on the pictures will redirect to the astrobin images where you can watch them in full resolution.
      Crop close-up

      And widefield

       
      Thanks for watching and clear skies to you too!

      Hi all
      I am one happy newbie.
      A short break in the cloud last night and I got my first hit on Andromeda.
      At first it was a small grey patch but with persistence and averted vision I got glimpses of  a bright central core with grey "cloud" extending out from each side.
      So my question from my LP back garden what might I be able to do to improve or at least get a more consistent visual.
      I have a skywatcher 130p the best views came with the supplied 20mm. 
      Would flocking and a dew shield help with contrast? A 25 or 32mm eyepiece clean up the image? Or maybe a colour filter to make it pop a little?
      I understand the limitations of both the scope  and viewing site both have a major effect but there must be steps I can take to get the best from what I have.
      Thanks in advance Ian

      Here is a picture I took with my wife on holiday in France. It was a rare evening of stargazing after 3 year toddler hiatus. 
      We took it on a canon 6d with a 16mm wide angle sitting on the star adventurer.
      It’s  based on 3 exposures where I stacked the sky part whilst only using 1 layer for the foreground. Maybe 20 second exposures I can’t quite recall now. Then bumped up the levels also in photoshop.

      Hi guys, I'm new here. 
      So i have heard from this source: 
      http://www.thescinewsreporter.com/2019/06/in-august-andromeda-galaxy-will-move.html?m=1
      that the galaxy andromeda will be visible to the naked eye and look bigger than the moon. They said that it will happen in August, but didn't specify a day. 
      Does anyone know anything about this? Or about how i kann see it? 
      Thanks in advance and sorry if my grammar is bad
