Description

Here is the Andromeda Galaxy!

This was captured during a recent camping trip, under Bortle Scale Class 4 skies. The imaging rig is very portable and easy to pack, so it was great to set up quickly and enjoy the outdoors without too much "staring at a laptop". I hope you were able to catch the video!

Thanks for looking guys.
