Bizibilder’s first Galaxy – M31 in Andromeda


M31 Image 1

Well!  This is the processed image – after quite a few problems as Bizibilder is not at all sure how to use the rather complicated software needed to stack 80 x 1minute images and then process something out of them!  He feels he has achieved something in the last three hours!  The picture represents a total exposure of 1hour 21mins of the Galaxy known as M31 or the “Great Andromeda Galaxy”  You can clearly see the central core and some of the surrounding spiral arms and dust lanes.  The smudge in the lower right is a second Galaxy M32 which is a satellite galaxy of M31 (ie part of the same system).
