M31 Lum from home

Recommended Posts

M31 from home after about 6 hours with the Tak collimator last weekend.

Slighty better stars but still the odd shape on one or two of the brighter ones.

Lovely image Steve works so well in mono, sort of makes want to delete the 3 hours I did with my Canon, which didn't pass muster compared with this. Must try harder.

I am only joking really, still learning the new CEM 60 mount and 071 and 183MC, you get better results than the Canon but I find processing a tad different, I'll get there. I also get a bit fed up on one subject matter all night, still it keeps me out of trouble.

This was taken with the TS71 imaging star.

I got the Tak collimator for the RC.

I do have an FS102 and FS60 though both doublets, the 60 is out on loan at the moment.
