Last night saw the closest approach (as seen on the sky, not in reality) between Comet PanSTARRS and the Andromeda galaxy (M31).

This image is from a stack of 53 images, each of 15s exposure, f/5.6 ISO 1600.

The camera was on an equatorial mount, tracking the sky, using a 200mm lens.

The background gradient comes from light pollution near to the horizon.

Camera:Sony Alpha SLT-A77
Lens:Sony 70-300mm G SSM
Recording media:RAW (digital)
