Hi all,
         It's been a while since I've posted any images,due to the lack of clear skies and the fact I was setting up my guiding and dithering in APT and PHD.I also spent a lot of time using PHD to drift align my scope.
Having accomplished  all those tasks I was ready to image something but it's only the last couple of nights that I really managed to do so.
My target was M31 again,this time using the refractor,as I had previously imaged it with the stock zoom lens that came with the camera.
             Clear Skies 
                                  Kevin.

Hello, Kevin. 
What a spectacular image you have given us of the 3 galaxies M 31, M 32, M110!
I greatly admire the blue hues surrounding M 31, the foreground stars and the orange stars too. 
Welcome back and thank you!

Clear skies from Aubrey.

Hi Kevin,

I love your image of the Andromeda Galaxy...it's stunning. I think this is your best image yet. Very well done! 

Clear skies, 
Darren.

Hi everyone,
             It's been a while since I posted any images mainly due to the weather.
However I managed to get a new image of M42 with the refractor for the first time a few nights ago,the wider field meant I also got the Running Man Nebula in the frame as well.
It was quite late at night so I only managed to capture twelve two minute subs but overall it came out ok.
I also got an image of M33 in Triangulum,it was slightly misty but it came out resonably ok.
     clear skies.
                   Kevin.
