Description

This is my first decent picture of Andromeda in 15 years of astrophotography. Yes. Really.

It's pretty low in here ( max altitude around 30° ), and right smack in the middle of the most light polluted part of the island for me.

Finally.

Now, I need to try with a real telescope and not a lens

120 x 30 Lum, 60 x 30 R, G and B channels, 30 darks, no flats, no bias, no guiding.
