Andromeda's Core
« on: September 26, 2019, 12:46:41 am »

I've been trying my hand at Astrophotography for almost a year now.  Lots of sleepless nights and money has been spent.  I am rewarded with awe for our universe every night though, and I am starting to get some decent images. 

Last night, I imaged the Andromeda Galaxy, our nearest galactic neighbor.  This was the first "object" I imaged during my first night of astrophotography on October 15, 2018. 

The scope I used last night is a far cry from the old soviet 300mm Tair 3 lens I used for my first photographs, but that old lens hooked me.  I am now pretty much addicted.

Anyway, here is a shot of the core of Andromeda.  This is 6.5 hours of imaging using a cooled mono camera and 5 filters. 

Lum: 60, 60 second images 1x1 Bin
Red: 80, 60 second images 2x2 Bin
Green: 80, 60 second images 2x2 Bin
Blue: 80, 60 second images 2x2 Bin
H-Alpha: 30, 180 second images 2x2 Bin

And for those interested, here is my first astrophoto, my first shot of Andromeda, taken almost a year ago.
