M31

This is quite a difficult target for me. The highest it rose on the night I captured this was 15 or 16 degrees.

Gear: Takahashi FSQ-106ED f/5 scope, Astro-Physics AP900 mount, SBIG STL11K camera

    Thanks very much, Dave!

    Everyone constantly underestimate just how difficult it is to capture and process a good galaxy image. Great image Rick.
