It pays to keep some older images at times. Here is a multi stack of M-31 combining a total of 12 x 3-5 minute exposures taken with two Astro-Physics refractors, Bill Burke's 150 f/8 and my AP155 f/7, shooting at f/5.3 with the Hutech modified Canon 6D and IDAS LPS-V4 filter, at ISO-3200-6400. Cumulative exposure was 40 minutes. The images were stacked in Registax and processed in PS CS-6.
