Description

So last night I tried to image M31, but there was this big, shiny light in the Sky, the Moon. And I can tell you that's it's a terrible idea

I should have stuck with narrowband imaging. Oh well, lesson learned

120 x 30 sec Lum, 30 x 30 sec R, G and B channels. 50 Darks.

Oh, and to be clear, this object culminate at around 25-30° where I live. It's a tough target for us Southlanders
