Also known as the Andromeda Galaxy. I took this shot on Monday night while out waiting for the northern lights to appear. When I initially arrived at my dark sky location, I didn’t see anything that resembled the northern lights, so I figured I’d take a shot at capturing Andromeda. I had a fairly good idea where it was located in the sky thanks to the 14mm shot from the monument rocks I posted a few days ago as well as my buddies good skymaps on his phone. After a few 30 sec exploration shots I was able to get it in the shot with my 85mm 1.8. I chose this lens because it was the fastest lens I had with the longest focal length. I was originally going to post this image on Tuesday but it was quickly given a back seat to my northern lights shots so I’ll go ahead and post it today.
