Description

My very first attempt at DSLR astrophotography, taken with a borrowed Nikon D60 and 18mm lens. No live-view on that camera, so made my best attempt to find focus with a series of test shots (obviously missed it). What I did like about this image was that M31 popped out at me in the stack, which I could not see with the naked eye.
