Absolutely cracking  image. There’s a warmth about the central region. The outer regions look natural and the sky is a velvety black.  What’s  Bortle class 😎 ? I’m guessing good.

thank you! Bortle 8, in the middle of a city. Light pollution is a real challenge here

Strewth!  I think it’s bad here at 5.  You’ve done well to remove it.

Simply a beautiful image of M31 to say the least, i agree with Ouroboros, i love the colour temperature in the core region.

Fabulous results using unguided 45s subs. Inspires me to keep going on my unguided EQ3-2. You did a great job removing the noise that must have been present at ISO3200 - how many darks did you take?!
