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.

Looks like a lovely dark sky and that chateau looks very familiar.

It does.  I wonder if it is Chateau-de-la-Motte Husson?

It's amazing what you pick up from your daughter's television-watching habits :)

I must admit I thought it was when I first looked but then so many in France are of a similar design so was not certain.

Oh I am so jelous now. The photo alone was amazing and now knowing where it is it must have been a wonderful holiday 🙂

      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

      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

      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?
