Description

Andromeda galaxy messier 31.

My first ever picture of our closest neighbour.

Tested my new kit lens canon ef-s 55-250mm f/4-5.6 , set at 250mm f/5.6 , 99x60s exposures, very tough wind had to put my exp down. +took calibration frames 50xbias and 30x dark. used dithering on each frame in backyard eos. I must admit this result for me is astonishing i did not expect this much. The lens is great i love it.

hope you do too.
