If you've never crushed coco-puffs in a plastic bag, one at a time with your fingers, you are missing out.

I took my first pictures of a galaxy last weekend. Galaxies are tough to find. Even in a six inch telescope they look like the faintest white fuzz, nowhere near as bright as a faint star. I do not have a polar aligning scope for my telescope yet so the photo is not as clear as it could be. The larger photo of Andromeda is a 45 second exposure of the galaxy looking through the telescope. The smaller photo of the Andromeda galaxy was my camera piggy backed on the telescope with a 300 second exposure. I hope to buy the polar aligning scope this Christmass...maybe sooner.
