Andromeda Galaxy M31 taken August 16th,
2013. Taken using a Meade LS8 telescope,
Nikon D3100 DSLR, ISO 1600, 30 second
exposure.  I found this exposure interesting
due to the orange hue from smoke high in
the atmosphere due to wildfire in California.
Taken August 16th, 2013.  The double star
system Alcor and Mizar found in Ursa
Major.  If you look at the Big Dipper this
double star will be found in the handle, the
second to last stars of the handle.  Taken
using a Meade LS8 telescope, Nikon
D3100 DSLR, ISO 1600, 25 second
exposure.
