This was a quick capture of m31. An unforecasted clear spell meant i had to take advantage of the clear skies. In fact, the seeing conditions were ideal. In all i captured 2 hours of data and had to pack away as i had work in the morning. I have so far had trouble processing this and have several versions prior to this. With a little help from a friend (matt foyle) i was able to create this image. It is most certainly work in progress as i still have to add in a full set of calibration files and more data over the coming months. It certainly is a lovely target and easy to capture, but be prepared to have your processing skills tested. I certainly recommend doug germans procesding tutoriaks, available on you tube.
