Another wide field Andromeda Galaxy Attempt

Fresh from my previous attempt at this I repeated the process, but this time in the capture application (APT) I pushed the live view zoom up to 10x and set the emulated ISO setting to 1600 with an exposure as long as it would stand. I then adjusted the focus to minimize the size of the (few) stars that I could see. This resulted in a much better-focused image. So much better in fact that a small amount of star trailing is evident 🙁 Without drift aligning I think that’s probably to be expected, but I might try to fix it for next time. Overall I think it’s a much better image than the previous one.
