Hi All!

 

I'm learning how to process with PixInsight, which by the way has quite a steep learning curve, but well worth the time spent learning. I took data from a November session of M31. This is not great data, as I did not correctly apply some of the calibration frames, but the results are still better than when I used Photoshop for processing. Below is a JPEG image, as well as a link to a TIFF. I hope you like it!

I am going to also do the same but I only have 45 Days and now only 38 and still no clear skies to try it out before putting down that much Cash.
