    Default M31 Processing help???



    Hi, I am totally new to astrophotography, so please be gentle.

    I have lately been taken some images of M31 Andromeda galaxy.

    I have managed to stack and stretch them in DSS without any luck of achieving colors in the image.

    The total time of the stacked images is around 10 min. 1x90 sec + bunch of 30 secs.

    Images are captured by Sony A65 with a homemade piggyback sitting on my cheap second-hand Meade 70 ETX telescope.

    Can someone please help me with the processing in PS or at least explain how to achieve better results???

    Give me your e-mail if you want the TIFF file
