Reprocesses of my 11/24 data of M31.
With Neil Heacock's tips, and a lot more care in using the processing tools.
The image consists of: 5 flats
5 bias frames
39 light frames @ 50 sec per frame
Orion 80MM ST refractor
Celestron CG5 GT mount (unguided)
Canon 350D (unmodified)
Captured in Nebulosity
Aligned & stacked in Deep Sky Stacker
Processed in Photo Shop Elements with Carboni tools, Gradient Exterminator applied as well
I think I am beginning to get the hang of it. These images won't win any awards, but I can see the potential.
