This is probably my fifth or sixth astrophotography image, I haven't even been in this hobby for six months. I considered making Andromeda as seriously as possible but without much knowledge. Fortunately I can work from my large terrace in Bortle 4/5 and taking advantage of a few days of good weather and fair/good vision I shot about 120 images a day on average for seven almost consecutive days.
They were on the 11th, 12th, 14th, 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th of this month of November 2023. On the 16th and 18th I shot with an SVBony SV220 narrow band filter, a total of 14.5 hours, the rest with a UV filter /IR, in total 27 hours.
The main problem has been the processing, initially I did it with Siril, I like this software but I couldn't do some things with it, 4 days ago I downloaded the 45-day trial version of Pixinsight, I watched a 7-part starter course on Spanish on Youtube and after several attempts this is the result I have been able to obtain, I am still not satisfied, I hope that when I improve my knowledge of Pixi I can improve this processing. I will possibly do another 15/20 hours of narrow band.
The shots were taken with a Canon 70-200 F4 first version lens at F:6.3 with a Skywatcher AZ-EQ5 mount and a Player One Ares-C IMX533 camera.
UV/IR exposures of 90/120 and 180 sec. and with SV220 filter at 600 sec.
I'm sorry for my bad English.
