This is my first image with my new TMB-92 telescope. It shows M31, also known as the Andromeda Galaxy. I performed 90% of the processing of this image for the first time in pixinsight. I’m impressed with the capabilities of this software. I just was not totally happy yet with the colors. After some tips from Olly Penrice and Harry Page I was able to get out much more. I think this is how I wanted the image to be.
