Messier 31 Andromeda Galaxy

Maybe it is one of the most photographed object ever. Us astrophotographers whenever we have a new equipment we go back to our old friend Andromeda, like many of you (astrophhotographer friends) I photographed this galaxy many times but I didn’t have time (clear weather) last year to photograph it after buying my Meade 70/350 Astrograph, last weekend we had a long weekend and I used the opportunity. I collected nearly 23 hours of data in 4 clear nights in a row.
