Description
M31, 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 George
