Going to be honest with you . You actually do have a very nice image of M31 but you have clipped the BP and therefore your hiding alot of detail . I know it's extra work but it would be well worth it to go back and re-edit from begining to bring out the M31 better and not clip the BP . Honestly it can be alot better .

Well, I took your advice and tried various techniques however the image did not get much better. Problem was mainly with light pollution that made extacting extra details impossible. However I did get a better and cleaner image and learned some new tricks.

Hy, thanks for the feedback. I proffer the background to be deep dark however I do like the more natural colors on your edit. I am still learning.

Anyway in the meantime I bought a Astronomik CLS filter for the 6d and that turned out to make an incredible difference. Yesterday night I managed to finally keep myself awake and do an M42 shootout.

You have a very nice shot there aurelm but it's way too much cyan color . needs to be more on the blue side of things . If you feel like it it is easily edited but I wont do that for you . But you might check out the M42 that Desertraptor has produced .

Some blue info was lost because of the CLS filter but I don't think that's a problem. I removed the color balance towards green, I cood down the white balance a bit and used 3 separate stacking and editing processes for the highlights, medium and background to get the most info out of all of them. The center of the nebula has detail again now.

Jannefoo you did a very good job on both the Andromeda and the California neb . That's one neb that is always a delight to see . What were your specs on the California neb ? That's a hard one to capture good detail . In the past I have seen images from a dedicated CCD astro camera that was several hours long to capture good detail . You did good but you need to keep adding to it with a lot more detail . M31 is great with detail and I'm surprised how well you were able to keep the glow down on the center core . Good job there !

Very good image , color is slightly off tho . Can you give some detail , mount , camera , lens , exposure , ISO ... etc.... ? I'm already guessing it's some type of tracking mount , your pretty experienced with the technique cause alignment on the mount has to have been set very good for your stars to be so perfectly round and your exposure times have to be more than 30-secs to be able to capture that much detail . I also see tho with some more editing there is a lot more detail there you have not brought out yet . This maybe a single shot but your more experienced than you let on . I know you cannot get this kind of image with perfect stars taking a single shot under 30-secs on a tripod with even the best of cameras . Prove me wrong ;) .
