The Andromeda Galaxy M31. 30x30 second FIT. My first serious attempt at imaging this beautifull galaxy. M32 and M110 are also visible here. Not to much done to this image in the form of post processing. Histogram and curves done in PhotoShop, and High Pass Sharpening to get the dust lanes to be more visible also done in PhotoShop. That's about it. Telescope: - Camera: Meade DSI Pro. 135mm 1:2.8 camera lens stopped down to 4 attached for wide field of view. Atop Orion EQ1 motorized mount. Filtration: Baader Planetarium UV/IR cut filter.
