M31 Second Attempt
Last night at the public event, after the crowds went back to their campsites, I took on some more imaging. The image below is another crack at M31 Andromeda. Again, the D40 was piggybacked atop my LX200. It's an okay image. I was careful to take flat images this time to get around the vignetting of the 200mm zoom lens, but there's still some warp factor in the image. Perhaps the lense is not well-suited to this sort of application???
A so-so image.
