Description

Snooping on the neighbour

Rev B - 2021 Feb 25 - Denoised/Sharpened

Widefield view of the Andromeda galaxy, Messier 31, a mere 2.5 million light years away, our nearest neighbour galaxy which will be colliding with us in about 5 billion years time, so not to worry yet ;-)

From a couple of nights ago with a full moon and cloudy. Needs a lot more data to get those dust lanes zinging.

Equipment: Redcat 51, ASI1600MM with LRGB filters, ZWO EAF, Ioptron Skyguider Pro

15 x 120s Each of LRGB at -15degC cooled camera, processed in APP, StarTools and Gimp.
