Andromeda again


M31, the Andromeda Galaxy, was always to large for my CCD. But with the Takahashi FSQ 106 and the new camera the galaxy fits the chip.

Imaged with the Moravian G3-16200 at my Takahashi FSQ 106. L:R:G:B:HA=690:350:380:370:390 minutes. Subexposures were 30 minutes for HA and 10 minutes for LRGB. Total exposure time was 36 hours. Baader filters.

The telescoped is mounted in my backyard observatory near Regensburg, Germany, at a Fornax 100.
