M31 - The Andromeda Galaxy (V)

This image was taken over the evening of 12th October, but for whatever reason, I've only just got round to uploading it.

 

It's the first image taken using my monochrome CCD Atik 383L+ camera and LRGB filters.

 

I also utilised auto-focusing for the first time, which makes it significantly better than my last attempt at M31.

 

Sky-Watcher Equinox ED80 + Atik 383L+, Sky-Watcher ST80 + QHY5, captured in MaximDL, stacked in DSS.
