I had a long weekend with several clear skies, was again testing the Rokinon 16mm lens with different settings. I was just reviewing them and noticed M31 tucked up in the corner. I could not see it that night, old eyes, but again got lucky with the shot. Settings were: 10 seconds, f/4, ISO 12800 with the Canon Rebel T7i Modified.
