Description

This is a disruptive year for me resulting in a house move right in the middle of nebula season! But while temporarily staying at my mother's house with my equipment, I managed to get a couple of nights' worth of data of M31 from her garden.

I lost quite a few subs to...foxes triggering the neighbour's security light! But got a good amount of data.

This year I managed to get more Ha into the image by masking the stars and blending it with the red channel.

Thank you for looking!
