M31 with QHY268C

First galaxy picture with the QHY268C

I have imaged M31 several times before and on this occasion I thought I’d turn the QHY268C onto the galaxy.

M31 - The Great Andromeda Galaxy (82 subs)

This image is made up from a total of 82 exposures, each of 180 seconds for a total integration time of about 2.5 hours.

I used my Takahashi FSQ85 refractor at its native focal length.  I used an LDAS 2″ light pollution filter in front of the camera to try and cut through the light pollution a bit.

Imaged from my backyard in Nottingham, October 2020 on MESU 200 mount and OAG used with an ASI 120mm guidecam.

Data captured with Sequence Generator PRo and processed in Pixinsight and Photoshop CC.
