EquipmentWilliams Optics ZS80, Losmandy G11 mount, Orion SkyGlow Filter, Canon Rebel XT. Processed in Image Plus and PhotoShop 7. Three hours of images over several nights combined in Image Plus.
DescriptionM31, is now high overhead and is great for imaging if you have to deal with light polluted skies - K9 Observatory is within a quarter mile of a Homed Depot, a Lowes and my favorite, a Super Walmart. The Sky Glow filter is a life saver, although it takes me 3-times as long to collect enough data, without it I doubt deep sky imagining would be possiable for me.
Cheers from K9
