Default ASTRO: M31

I was not able to get more exposures before the clouds moved it.
Seeing was good, total exposure was 23.5 minutes. M31 on 7 September
2010 from a farm just south of Blueknob state park, PA. TOA150 at
F/7.3. STL11000M, 2x10 min L, 1x3.5 min L. Full frame, no reduced.

That camera and scope are well matched for this one. Bet there's even
more detail to be pulled from the image, especially in the star clouds
and dust lanes.

I agree, if you look in the dark corners of the frame you will see
some small galaxies. Not bad for 23.5 minutes.

Good image, that camera and scope seem to be a good match.

is 7.3 the native focal ratio for the TOA 150?

Robert,

stars look perfect in the whole field. This must be a great scope. And the
result looks good in spite of the short exposure time.

Not to mention you caught what appears to be an Asteroid.

Is it an Asteroid? I have caught several in past images but none
that moved as much, but a satellite would move much more, unless it
was very far away.
