The Andromeda Galaxy

APM TMB105 4-inch APO refractor with a William Optics TMB Flattener and a QHY8 one-shot colour CCD camera.

This picture of M31 was made from over four nights of data taken in an urban location. I’m really pleased at how it has turned out; the detail of the dust lanes swirling into the core gives a good feeling of motion.
