I had planned on this shot being a composite of two 1 Hour exposures. The first shot had horribly trailed stars (I bumped the setup while the exposure was going). This is the first time I have tried to shoot the Andromeda Galaxy, so I wasn't sure how to frame the shot or how long to let the exposure run. Now that I see how this shot turned out, I will probably go to 90 minute exposures (hopefully next time I won't be so clumsy around the setup).
