Description

A galaxy that needs no introduction: Andromeda and its companions M32 and M110. For many, this is one of the first astrophotography targets. Somehow I have never shot it properly. To fit it inside my field of view, I went for a 2-panel mosaic.

For a last week weather was on our side, and I managed to get 17 hours of LRGB data during just a week.
