M31 The Andromeda Galaxy

This is going to be an ongoing project I'll be continuing through the summer and fall as M31 rises higher. I'll be adding more data to this image hoping to get several hours worth of integration time.


It started with 45 minutes of capture time over the weekend. Since then, 2 more sets of data have been added, adding another hour worth of integration time bringing it to the current total of 1H 45M.



Nikon D5100

Explore Scientific ED80

Celestron AVX (unguided)

1H 45M of mixed length and ISO exposures
