Description

Finally got around to processing this data from September of last year. This is my second round with HDR imaging and my first try at the mighty M31. Bracketed exposures were processed in Pixinsight's HDR Composition tool. HA data blended using the HARVB script.

Taken from Harrington Beach State Park in Belgium, WI. Bortle 4 skies.
