    Second shot at astrophotography

    Well this time I went a bit better prepared and went outside of town for better view. Basically I started with shooting Mars: as this is 100% crop, then I quickly found out that it's pointless :) So I moved to task nr 2: Andromeda galaxy. Well I was able to find it and I played around with...
