M31 - Andromeda Galaxy

While I am out of an auto guider since my Lodestar is in for repair after apparently exploding I decided to jerry-rig a setup for last night. Using my normal ccd (Atik 314L+) as the guider and my Nikon D7000 for the imaging camera. I hadn't used the D7000 for astrophotography yet, so I also wrote up a review:


Very happy with how the D7000 performed and I will have to use it more often!


Scope: Orion EON 80ED

Camera: Nikon D7000
