M31

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Whilst on Holiday last week I managed to get 5 hours of data on M31.

The subs consisted of 3, 4 and 5 minutes.

Gear used in sig, but as I was imaging from Bortle 4 skies near the coast I didn't use a Light Pollution filter.

Processed in Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.

I think I prefer this one, the colours are a bit more subtle. What do you think?M31-Export-5.thumb.jpg.8e08ab55ad9d260c62b19064895c4db6.jpg

Yes, nicely framed. I think I prefer the second version, the core stars look too magenta in the first. Just my humble opinion of course.

Both are nice versions, but I think the second has the edge. Great job 👍🏼

Thanks very much.

Very nice image but I am confused as none of the kit in your sig would give that field of view unless heavily cropped.... I would much prefer the whole frame.

Thanks, yes it has been cropped in quite a bit.

Yes, have to agree. Diffraction spikes are acceptable (Inevitable) with spiders, but shouldn't, IMHO, be added where none exist in the original data.

Thanks for the feedback. Currently sitting on top of reddit r/astrophotography with 1.2k uovotes in 13 hours. Very happy with that!
