long, last Andromeda ! ! !
On 12 December 2010, after months of eternal overcast night
skies, I finally capured M32, the great spiral galaxy in
Andreomeda from the midst of town.
10 exposures, each 15 seconds
long @ ISO 1600 and f/3.5 with my trusty Pentax K200D and my
equally trusty vintage Tamron 200 mm f/3.5 (Model 04B -
Adaptall-2 system) stacked in Registax 4 and
PhotoImpact X3 provided this result:
But that's not all:
Move your cursor over the image and
see what happens, when one stacks 6 images of 30 seconds, 9
images of 20 seconds and 10 images of 15 seconds exposures.
Click to open a larger version of that image in a frame of its own.
