Hey everyone!! I just kinda finished these up! M31 and M45. Love them both and they fit great with my Scope and Camera combo. I hope you all like them. They were both challenging I felt. C&C always welcome!!

Thanks,

Jimmy

I like M45. Very nice processing.

I think M31 is a bit soft.

That's a great start on two great DSO's. M45 looks great, you pulled out some fine color and detail in the nebulosity. On M31, you captured some great color and detail in the dust lanes as well and the core is not blown out. Well done, thanks for sharing.

Wow, your version of M45 is ecstatic and definitely stands out among all of the photos I've seen of it.

Both images are great!
Enlarge them and hang them on a wall.
