Mosaic of M31, The Andromeda Galaxy. 

Recommended Posts

This is the most ambitious image I've attempted so far. A six pane mosaic taken with my SCT.

It is really a work in progress as I intend to add more exposure time to it. It may take a while! 

So far I have 32 mins per pane, with a total exposure time of 3 hours 12 mins.

48 x 240s lights, 12 darks, 25 Flats, 25 Bias.

There is  a trace of a dust lane in M110, which will hopefully improve as more lights are stacked.

Thanks Martin!

Definitely a labour of love! I have been planning this image since October, but due to the weather it was not possible until now. I very nearly did not process it, as I thought I didn't have enough data!
