This was my first light i´ have ever shot in DSO Astrophotography. I was very proud, when i finished my first processing. I love the Andromeda Nebula. It is so far away and yet so close... an impressive object for a beginner and also for a professional!

I captured the Galaxy with my APO Explore Scientific and the Canon 1000Da sitting on the Sky Watcher Star Adventurer Mount. That meant 5,8Kg plus SA on a Rollei 50Ci Photo-Tripod.

This Year i will try it again and looking forward to capture the object again under better conditions.
