Andromeda Goes viral!


Over 15000 views in Just two days! I never expected it. To be frank, I did not even know what I was shooting. This was the ultimate accidental shot.

I was pointing my fisheye in the sky, and taking 50s exposures(longest you can go without trailing). And then I decided, how about a 10s shot with my 50mm 1.8?

So I took a few shots, towards a north-ish direction, and guess what, one of the frames had this galaxy. Posting it online, I discovered, I had shot the andromeda galaxy!.


And this piqued my interest in “knowledgeable” Astro-Photography.

So no longer I was going to just point and shoot. It made me a “point” shooter. Find an interesting object in the night sky, and then shoot.

Hopefully, sometime in the future, I will acquire a tracking mount (my job at the Spoken English institute will start paying next month), and will be able to do much longer exposures. Night skies… here we come!
