A shot of Andromeda Galaxy in 200mm FL and f/2.8, with a Canon Unmodded T4i/650D. Exposure: 14x30s ISO 1600 from dark skies (VLM~6.4)

Fotografia da Galáxia de Andrômeda com 200mm de distância focal e f/2.8, com uma Canon não modificada T4i/650D. Exposição foi: 14x30s ISO 1600 em um céu escuro com magnitude visual limite aprox. 6,4

*Update 28/08/14: after more than a year, I've come across this image and decided to apply one of my recently learned skills: star shrinking. This is yet my only M31 picture, with a extremely short exposure time. I look forward trying this target again, with a much improved gears, skills, techinques ad exposure time. Can't waist till travelling to a dark sky and see this Galaxy in my 7x50s; 150 Telescope and photograph it.*
