very nicely done. And I'm still having problems to get the Andromeda galaxy looking like a real galaxy here

Thanks. Unfortunately there's no substitute for photons

Maybe I have to buy some decent EQ5 mount with tracker or maybe even a Vixen polarie to get me the desired exposures I want. Now, I can only shoot at ~1 sec. with D700 @ 3200 ISO without getting starrtrails. Would love to go beyond the minute to get this wonderfull galaxys

You could make one. Or get an old RA-only drive mount. If you're not going to get a telescope, the trackers like the Polarie and Astrotrac are FAR handier.
