"Quick and dirty" 1h exposure on M31 with the Zen Baker-Schmidt with non perfect collimation (argh!) and 6D. Procissing by Edoardo Radice. From Colle del Nivolet (italian Alps, 2600 mslm, Bortle 1-2, SQM 21,4+). The terrible blue stars are due to an error made by me during calibration.

Immagine "brutta, sporca e cattiva" per collaudare l'insieme 6D e Baker (che NON era perfettamente collimata - e si vede!). Dal Colle del Nivolet. Processing Edoardo Radice. . Le mostruose stelle blu che più blu non si può sono frutto di un mio errore nelle calibrazioni.
