I've been trying for over a year to get a shot of M31 that showed more than just a fuzzy white blob and this is the closest I've come so far. It was taken on 8th December 2014 from light-polluted London, but it took such a lot of processing to get just this much out that I lost all objectivity with it and shelved it. But looking at it again I now don't think it's too bad for an early attempt. Obviously I've got much further to go before I get a shot I'd be truly happy with, but this is something of a milestone for me. It was taken with a 50mm lens and drizzled three times in DSS. 53 x 8 second exposures at 400 ISO and 11 dark frames.
