I accidently posted this in Elmo's epic journal thread instead of here a couple of weeks back. Sorry about that Elmo :/

Begin old post:
I spent all last night at the observatory taking photos of the Andromeda Galaxy for the mosaic I'm working on. I also had the opportunity to try out some light painting and general star shots.

In the photos you can see the band of the Milky Way. In a few there are some guest satellites and the Andromeda Galaxy.

All of these are 30 second exposures (I'm working on getting a remote shutter control so I can utilize the bulb setting).



















Images were taken on the morning of July 25, 2012 at the Stull Observatory, Alfred University, Alfred, NY
