I was able to gather a load more data on Andromeda last month, adding to what I had already. Putting it all together took some doing, its been dithered and drizzled and then I had some fun and took some time over the processing. This one is a composite that took a while to construct since theres various things going on. Between us and Andromeda there is a foreground of stars, I have tried to get those out of the way to get a better look.
