First attempt at astrophotography
I finally got the focuser working on my 8″ newtonian scope with my 5d mark 2. Saturday night I attempted to photograph M31, the Andromeda Galaxy with it. The scope was mounted on a Celestron Cg-5 EQ mount.
Click a photo to see it in a lager size.
This is one single 2 minute exposure, taken at iso 1000.
This is a stack of three 2 minute exposures. I converted it to black and white to reduce the pink haze.
