M31 Andromeda Galaxy with Canon 6D

I wanted to post this as a contrast to my Andromeda photo the other day. This is a deviation from what I usually post but I thought it was interesting. This photo of Andromeda was shot with my dad’s Canon 6D piggy backing on my Nexstar 8SE. It’s 8 10 second frames stacked. It was a full moon and our very first try at using his camera in conjunction with my tracking scope, so it’s obviously not the best ever. But we even built a home-made mount so his camera could attach to my scope. Not surprisingly, the detail is infinitely better than an iPhone but not anywhere close to as good as we’ll get in the future. Just thought it was interesting to see the difference!
