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.

This is one single 2 minute exposure, taken at iso 1000.

M31, M32, M110

This is a stack of three 2 minute exposures. I converted it to black and white to reduce the pink haze.
