    I've managed to add more data to my previous shot of this galaxy in the Andromeda constellation. I've added extra 2 hours of luminance gathered with an UCRC 320mm and RiLA 400 telescopes + about 3 hours of color information acquired with several different scopes from my older attempts during the years. These new datas improved a lot my overall SNR allowing me to push harder the deconvolution and sharpening over the galaxy dusts lanes. Colors helps also to differentiate morphology making things more interesting to the eye.
    Please take a look to the full res image.

    Thanks for stopping by!
