Simply the most jaw droppingly stunning image I've ever seen - of any subject! Congratulations...

I am speechless. Without a question we blew our money on Hubble if we can do this from earth...

My hat is off. Bravo!!!

Must have missed this too. Phenomenal image Grinde. The colour is excellent, and I'm most impressed with the very smooth background. What NR did you use if any if you don't mind me asking. 

Tom.

Loved looking at this image.

Found this lovely edge on spiral galaxy in the bottom right hand corner of your image. It's the tiny slither in the centre of this crop.

Nice spot!

If there were an Oscar's on this forum you'd be walking up to the podium now with all of us in the audience, caught as the camera briefly falls on us, clapping and faking that smile that says we're not jealous at all ....LOLOL

Can't believe I've missed this thread. Quite possibly the finest image taken from the ground I've seen, and rivals many that the hubble managed.

Have spent a good half hour studying it instead of working and will be looking at it again later!

Just a stunning image, I'm not sure what I would get with a C9.25 and full frame DSLR on this. Going to try though.

Sorry about digging up this old thread but its freaking awesome!!! I keep coming back to it as a benchmark for any image of M31.

Stunning image. Worth the effort. You can just keep zooming and zooming in and reveal stacks of detail. This gives the Hubble a run for its money. Certainly something for the rest of us to aspire to. Thanks for sharing such a great project.

Jonas,

fantastisk Andromeda! Din kamp mot vädrets makter i höst har satt svenska amatörastronomer på kartan!

Bästa hälsningar

Göran

Wowzer! Thanks for sharing these. I was excited to see it as a smudge through 10x50 bins but these views are amazing. I will be studying in detail to boost my enjoyment when I hopefully see it next through my new scope as a bigger smudge.

      Hi guys,
      So on Tuesday night I spent the evening imaging the moon with my Celestron 9.25 SCT and DSLR as shown below and am happy with the images I collated (I only took images as I did intend to take capture video but I got carried away and time was getting on).
      I have approx 350 jpeg (and the equivalent in raw) images and have used the Microsoft image composite editor to stitch the frames together without editing them first etc but I wonder if I'm going the images an injustice?
      I'm not ready to pay for editing software as I know there is a lot of very good free downloads out there and I'm asking for recommendations. Should I be processing the frames before/after stitching and what software would you recommend? Please offer any advice you have.
      I will post the resulting image once I'm happy with the outcome 😁
      Thanks in advance,

      So, although I had some issues with my auto guiding (which I found out afterwards) I did manage to get 9x180s exposures and 5 darks of Andromeda and give both stacking (using DSS) and processing (using GIMP).
      My first attempted DSO....
       
      I am pretty sure that people could get far more information out of the TIFF file from the stack.
      Hopefully I will get another clear night soon. I am in a heavily light polluted area so I do have a clip in filter on my DSLR which I think took a lot away.
      More practise needed!
      Lance
