Space - A Long Way To Go

Like a lot of people in lockdown I was looking around for something to photograph, I tried macro, no good at that, I also scared a lot of birds off and I decided I was no good at nature either. So i looked a little further afield and decided to try something completely different. Fired with enthusiasm i searched around for the equipment to do deep space astophotography, only to find that a lot of other people had had the same idea and it was impossible to get the equipment. After a wait of several months the equipment finally turned up and then began the frustrating massive learning curve. This shot of the Andromeda Galaxy is the first partly successful image I have managed to get, I have a long way to go but I am finding it a fascinating journey.

Canon 6D 70-200mm lens @ 200mm f4 52x 2 minute exposures stacked in deep sky stacker with 10 dark frames. Processed in photoshop and NIK
