At Last! A Smudge!

No exactly epic but I’m pleased at how my camera pointing skills are progressing.  This was taken at the dark sky site with the Canon T3i, the 18-55 kit lens at 55mm f/5.6, 10 seconds at ISO 1600. The two yellow blocks are u and v Andromeda.  I was pointing the camera using Cassiopeia as my anchor point.

Another camera pointing exercise:  Back at my home base I was using the SkyView app on my phone to point at M31.  The image was taken with the Canon T3i using a 24mm f/2.8 lens – 15 seconds at ISO 800.
