M31 Andromeda Galaxy

M31 Andromeda Galaxy

2 nights of imaging from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

1st night: 67 x 100 seconds

2nd night: 64 x 100 seconds

8 dark frames

iso 800


Equipment :

NEQ6 pro

Skywatcher Equinox 80ed

TeleVue Trf-2008

Synta Computer-less Autoguider


Aligned and stacked in Nebulosity. Added Dynamic Background Extraction and stretched levels in Pixinsight. Definitely a tricky target from the city, I am pretty happy with the FOV with the TeleVue flattener but I still had to crop a bit from a bad gradient on the left and patched a dust spot on the lower right side. I wonder if I should add one more night data??!
