We finally have got some decent dark skies here in Norway. My first image this autumn is Andromeda - M31-M32- M110.
The Andromeda galaxy is our nabour galaxy only 2.5 MLY away. It has trillions of stars and Magitude 4.4, you can see it easy with a binocular under dark skies.
Celestron ED80 piggyback on CPC 1100 - 600 mm f7.5, Canon 40D modified, 30x4 min guided, ISO 800, 20 darks, no flats.
