M31 - The Andromeda Galaxy

08 August 2019

Imaging the Andromeda Galaxy was on my bucket list for the last two years and I finally got a chance to cross that one off. However not all went as planned. There were several issues:

  • I forgot the power bank which left me with one camera instead of two.
  • Due to the lack of an adequate power source I couldn't power my lens heater which resulted in far less usable subs than I hoped for.

Nevertheless I think the resulting image is a good first attempt. Next time I'll do better.
