Andromeda Galaxy finally getting there!

After my last attempt at M31 I had another go and this time only took 38 Photographs with ISO at 1600 and exposure of 30 seconds. Stacking them with 23 Darks and no Bias or lights shots.
Possibly improved if I had done those but wanted to find out if it did. To my surprise it did not make that much differences.
So after they were stacked it was into photo shop adjusting first levels then curves to stretch out the data. Then a slight unsharp filter and two high pass filters applied one on the small details one on the larger dust lanes. Feel this is the best one so far and have really enjoyed the challenge of improving on it.
