Description

Every guitar player has to know how to play Stairway to Heaven. And every amateur astrophotographer has to shoot M31.

This is a combined image shot in a 4-panel mosaic at Big Bend on our dark-sky trip in November with the C11 and Hyperstar and then combined with data we got later at home with the small refractor.
