M31, the Andromeda Galaxy, was always to large for my CCD. But with the Takahashi FS 60 the galaxy fits the chip.
Imaged in with the Moravian G2-8300 at my Takahashi FS 60 @ f=264mm with the original reducer. L:R:G:B:HA=230:100:100:100:380 minutes. Subexposures were 10 minutes for HA and 2 minutes for LRGB. Total exposure time was 15 hours.
