Description

Last year over Labor Day weekend I shot Andromeda Galaxy from Convict Lake, a very dark site in the Sierras, using my ST-80 and DSLR. Here is my revisit over this Labor Day weekend with my new camera and my 80mm APO. Weather was quite good, except for one cloudy night and a lot of wind, and I got some good data; this is my first processed picture of the batch, but I suspect it will be my favorite.

Revision B: Just a color tweak.
