Narrow Field Image of M31 from Virginia Dale/State Line HWY 287

This is my first guided 30 minute exposure of M31 using Kodak Gold through a Stellarvue
80mm f/6 refractor and a Pentax 35mm camera. Taken on Sept. 13, 2001. Looks like it
could use at least a one hour exposure! The 14.5 mag. galaxy (UGC522) just above 35v And.
can just be seen  The work continues!!!!
