Hello everybody,

 

this is my first attempt to image in HaRGB. The photo rig is based on an 80 ED Artesky refractor reduced to 440mm focal lenght and an ASI 294 MC PRO, 46 hours in RGB made from 300s exposures and 17 in Ha made from 300s exposures, guided with an ASI 120 on a miniguider 32 mm, iOptron HEM 15 mount, from my garden 20.2 SQM sky.I use Pixinsight for post production with SPCC and BlurXterminator.CC are welcome.

Awesome image! 

 

Do you know how M31 compares in size to our own galaxy.

Thank you, if I'm not wrong M 31 is bigger than the milky way.

Nice work, the picture has quite a lot of detail for an 80mm telescope. You can try to work on color balance.
I also have  work on astrobin for the M31 galaxy with 80mm telescope and ASI2600color camera.
