paulgrover68 Posted November 3, 2020 Share Posted November 3, 2020 M31 has been a bit of dodgy subject for me this year. Admittedly my 200PDS has way too much focal length for it. The 72 EDF fits it very well. Last night I picked it as "let's chance it target". There was 90% Moon lurking around close by and I was pretty impressed how my IDAS LPS P2 handled it My main aim was to test my new saucy filter drawer, so to get an image to process was a bonus.From a moonlight perspective, I would not normally have gone out... but the LPS filter does have some dark magic going on. My subs were definitely more grey than usual, but there was only a mild gradient. So this is my best M31 capture of the year... but I just can't seem to pull out the colour or detail I want. I don't think I'm far off. The Moon without doubt played a role in contrast flattening and detail killingI used 71 x 180 second subs (no starlinks crossed my path either!). Be really grateful for any tips for Andromeda as I feel I'm getting close, but it just need that extra bit of something. 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
