Having had such a great experience with the Orion Nebula, my next target will be the Andromeda Galaxy! My Sky Safari app tells me it should be to the west northwest near the zenith. I assumed it would be visible to the naked eye but I can’t find it. Am I just not looking hard enough?
One of my favorite deep sky objects in the night sky, the great Andromeda galaxy.
All the processing has been done with Pixinsight. The scope was FSQ-85 with the good old unmodded Canon 6D. Around 5 hours of data with 5 minutes exposure.
Hope to add some short exposures to the core someday.
To save time getting right to the point-Ive owned a celestron skyprodigy 90 and that scope alone made me feel more powerful than ever.Im planning on spending close to 2,000 on a new setup with a far larger aperture and although I love the cassegrain goto scopes from celestron and Meade,I’ve been wondering if my budget should go toward a custom dobsonian.
My dream begins with landing a setup within that budget and choosing the right attachments to be able to study the moon up close and personal.If you can imagine it I’d like to be able to at least recognize a footprint if there is one.Im assuming this is possible while so many scopes can see so much further away like other planets and such.
I’m more than grateful for any input that you’ve learned the hard way or any financial corners I can cut while still being true to the game.
Thanks in advance.
