Finally sorted out the motor drive on my telescope mount and so decided to have a go at stacking a bunch of shots. I was aiming for the Andromeda galaxy but actually ended up recording the fainter Triangulum galaxy and the star cluster NGC 752.
This is from a total exposure of 27.5 minutes, made up in 30 second exposures, combined using DeepSkyStacker. The camera was just mounted to the telescope mount, tracking the sky and the image taken with a 50mm lens.
