Hi, this is Samet from Northern Cyprus. A special thanks to @universetoday for letting me take over their account and publish my work
Here is my account, @smtgram if you want to check out my gallery.
This is one of my first deep-sky photos shot by DSLR and a telephoto lens.
At the end of last July, I joined an astronomy camp in Olympos Antalya, Turkiye. Before joining this camp I searched lots of photos of Andromeda Galaxy. I have learned how to stitch shots and how to stretch to enhance the final image. I have watched a lot of tutorials on youtube and got everything except one thing... where is Andromeda?
I couldn't find it, and even I used tracing methods like plate solving or applications like Stellarium. I was shooting for hours and couldn't get Andromeda in the frame.
Finally one of my friends caught it in an 85mm. lens and then I saw the Andromeda with the naked eye and then I didn't sleep until that morning.
