RGB Andromeda + 30hrs of Ha


A month I captured M31 from a dark country site. From the dark location, I captured RGB+1h of Ha for the star formation of the galaxy’s arms.

During last month I spent many hours adding Ha to the same FOV, this time the imaging was done from my very light polluted urban observatory. My goal was to test my new reducer and try to capture the very faint Ha ‘clouds’ that are in the same FOV of Andromeda.

After +30hrs of Ha integration I can confirm that the Ha structure is there, however, I cannot register any high-frequency detail.

This is the result of adding 30h of Ha to the RGB data. This project was completely planned and executed with Voyager.
