Description

M31 with the Canon 200mm @f5 with step down ring to avoid spikes on bright stars. I enjoyed a clear 1/2 night where I packed a 6L 1R 1G 1B ratio. The color layer out of stack was very thin an dull but I think I extracted some value here.

I'm more famiiar with NB imaging but this image has given me some incentive to do more LRGB.
