Andromeda Galaxy (M31, M32, NGC206)

My first attempt shooting the Andromeda Galaxy with my DIY Barn Door tracker. Timing still needs much optimization but I was able to shoot some captures (5-8 seconds each at 180mm) without too much trailing. I was quite happy to see the dust clouds in the galaxy. It's a good start in my eyes. ☺


Overall exposure time: ca. 6 minutes @ f3.5/f4.0
