M31-The Andromeda Galaxy on 10/18/09

It was very cold this evening, but the sky was clear and so I finally had a chance to try out my new imaging filter with my Nikon D50 camera. I decided to image the Andromeda Galaxy, M31 and I think it did a good job. I need to take some good flats to get the levelling right, but overall, I’m pretty pleased with the image.
