Andromeda galaxy v2.0 - M31

We give the andromeda galaxy another shot. In these time of the year, the visibility of our neighbour galaxy is pretty good. The goal was to take a picture which catches mostly everything of the widly blending nebula-circels of the galaxy. So we tried to align the camera diagonal to the galaxy which worked quite good. The result is more colorful than the first one and we have some more details.
