Grinde

M 31 Andromeda Galaxy, 41 hours and 27megapixel mosaic

Recommended Posts

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.

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

      Hey.. So last night i went to a beach that had one side completely dark ,and the other filed with light pollution . In the dark side,the milky way gqlaxy was pretty obvious and the sky was  full of stars. Andromeda was rising and i wanted to take a peak, however , it was low on the horizon and had a slight haze(skyglow).It wasn't visible with the naked eye and in my 10x50 binoculars i could just resolve the core.
      I heard Andromeda would be visible with the naked eye as its mag 3.3. But the milkyway was and Andromeda wasnt.What went wrong?

      I currently am on holiday in my father's hometown, a small island near rhodes called symi.Symj, is a pretty small town,with only about 2000 residents.That means that the light pollution levels must be low. Acknowledging that, i called my friends, grabbed my 10x50 bins(that i got for 20€ from Turkey),and went on my way to find a dark site.About after 20 mins of walking (from the city),i stumbled upon a beach, it was dark, so i went in.There i decided to lay on a sunbed that was there.After looking up(not being dark adapted, my friends just kept turning their flashlights on for some reason), i saw the haze of the milky way stretching from Cassiopeia to cygnus and beyond!I was amazed as i ve never seen the milky way before and smudged it off as clouds until i confirmed it was the milky way from an app! The weird part was that at just straight overhead, was the port ,which had many lights, and as a result the sky appeared half bright and half dark. I turned over at Sagittarius and headed over the lagoon nebula. Brilliant! 3-4 stars in a line surrounded by bright nebulosity.(while still being in the haze!) Afterwards i headed to cygnus,it was a real light show! I saw the milky way layering on top of Cygnus while catching a glimpse of m23 and yet again, failing to see NGC7000 . Then, with the corner of my eye, i detected something moving, then turned over to Cassiopeia to see a shooting stsr!(it was my first time seeing one!!!) Was very brief, yet enjoyable. Right afterwards i turned over at the Perseus double cluster.Magnificent! Appeared as 2 small balls of light , almost connected yo eachother. Finally, i realised that finally, the target i was seeking to observe all year long, M31 was into the area with the light pollution! What a shame! While also being low on the Horizon, I couldnt see it with the naked eye. I observed it with ny binoculars for 10 minutes or so . The core was resolved nicely with some hints of outer nebulosity. Overall a great night and now, i wished i had my 8" dob with me....

      Second time I undertake this kind of endeavour. Many many movies were shot. Over 300Gb of data. Stitching was done by hand. in adobe Photoshop. 
      Equipment used: 
      CFF 300f//20 cassegrain
      ASI174MM with Astronomik proplanet807
      processing using Autostakkert, lynkeos and adobe photoshop.
      Image is a wee bit too large to add to post direclty. hence just the link.

      enjoy.

      Could be one to watch as it should brighten further... shame it is so poorly positioned at this time of year
