This was my first opportunity to photograph the Andromeda Galaxy in 2021! I set up my equipment at 3:30 am on my front porch in Charlottesville, VA, USA and got over an hour of time photographing the galaxy before sunrise. This shot was taken in Bortle 5 skies, meaning that this level of detail is easily visible even through moderately light polluted skies. I'm very excited to continue photographing this object through the second half of the year.
