Description

My second try on Messier 32 through my TS 65Q 420mm f6.5 unguided on the EQ6 mount. The picture is a stack of 60 sec subs and an overall exposure time of approx. 2h, taken by my Nikon D610 @ ISO 3200. Next time i want to guide the mount and do longer exposure times at lower ISO. From the software side, there is still much to lern!
