Another Swing by Andromeda by humphreyhippo

Another Swing by Andromeda

Technically taken last night, but as we finished just after midnight, it counts as far as I'm concerned. ;)

Think I've made some progess since my last attempt at M31, the Andromeda Galaxy.
This is taken with a different lens and hey presto, the red halos are gone...

This is 3hr 14m of integration time stacked in DeepSkyStacker and processed in Photoshop, mostly following AstroBackyard's tutorial.

Notes to self:
Lights - 334 @ 35s / 500mm / f/8 / ISO1600
Darks - 30
Flats - 34
Bias - 50
Moon @ 75% illuminated - and lots of fireworks. ;)
I don't understand all the technical stuff that went into this, but I like it. :-)
