M31 and M110 - 31.1.2023 at 19.13 Kurikka Observation number 111813

Visibility III / V

Marko Myllyniemi, Lakeuden Ursa

After photographing Comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF), I decided to try photographing the Andromeda galaxy with camera optics. Due to the lack of a follower platform, I had to leave the exposures quite short (10 seconds), and all in all, the exposure accumulated for only a couple of minutes (12*10s). Stacking with Sequator. During the final processing of the image, I ended up changing the image to black and white, which made processing a little easier. M31 and M110 standing out as a fog spot on the right side of its nucleus.
