Excellent photographs.

You are lucky to have relatively dark skies in your vicinity, as they are hard to find where I am. I have however, had some success doing astrophtography in the city by using different custom white balances.

Hello, i use an application called " Universe Sandbox" and one of the preloaded models is the andromeda galaxy crashing into the milkyway.

You can download a free version too....

Thanks you should post some of your pictures on the Members Asrtophotography thread, that dark sky site is still about an hour and 20 mins drive from were I live and it was about minus 7 degrees when taking the pictures.

Not owning a telescope or suitable camera, here's an image I created using NASA's SkyView Virtual Telescope service, using DSS image surveys:

The Andromeda has probably the most beautiful dust lanes of all galaxies.

That would be real pic if we could see whole Andromeda galaxy. It would appear as at least 4 times the size of Moon in our sky. BUT we only see the center of Andromeda, because other parts are not bright enough. There is way too much light pollution (anywhere on Earth) and the atmosphere causes disturbance. And human eyes are not sensitive enough.

It looks like its really close, but its really, really wide. Its diameter is 165 000 - 200 000 light years. Milky Way is around 100 000 light years.

And Andromeda Galaxy is visible to naked eye on clear night when there is no light pollution. Its brightest galaxy on northern night sky.

Do you think the universe goes on forever ? no, if it did the combined brightness of all the stars would make it so bright during the day and night. They believe we so far can see about 75% of our universe ans when you get to the end you loop around and come out on the other side.

I wonder, if with a good night vision camera, with a clear sky, away from the city, if one could see much more of Andromeda.

That sounds like a good project for summer camping.

To be honest you may be disappointed most night vision cameras are low res, better to take a few images with a good camera lens combination and stack then in DSS.
