GALAXY - M31 Andromeda

The great galaxy in Andromeda


This is what M31 looked like 2.5 million years ago. Shot with a modded 7D through a 60mm refractor @ f/6.2 mounted on an EQ6.

An hour's worth of exposure in 30 shots of 2 minutes each at ISO 1600. I was surprised to see that despite the high ISO the stars show some colour, even in heavily polluted skies.
