M31, again.

It needs a bit more edits in photoshop, but here he comes:

142x30s, Sigma 80-200 @ 200mm F/4 ISO 1600 and my 350D on the EQ3-2.

Nice. Maybe get the framing a bit better next time? I used two bright stars nearby as a navigation aid.

Since the sky is clear for now, I've started another imaging session. M31 is still a bit low for me so I'm doing a wide angle shot of almost the whole sky for now.

Oh, youre remembering me to something: I used 2x drizzle in DSS, so the original frame is much and much larger.

Looks like its getting there!!!

I was out last night capturing this. As Popo said the framing could be a bit better but that will come with practice.

They are both good shots but I do prefer the second as I can see all of M31 :D

I'm with Digz - both are good shots :)

I've been out of commission for the past few days with a middle-ear infection - it kind of puts a damper on things when you can't look up without it feeling like the world starts spinning in high gear... - but at least I've got some good stuff to look at here. :wink:

Floyd.

Youre right it should be more in the center, but while stacking I used the 2x drizzle mode, and I just did not correctly locate the M31 galaxy because on a single frame, it's pretty faint.

Quality applied? You mean there's too much fringing isnt it? You have to remember this was my first real astrophoto, so I used the lens' maximum aperture of 3,5 @ 200mm.
