Andromeda over the Old Man of Storr

The Andromeda Galaxy and the Old Man of Storr. So this conjunction happened way back in April and I’ll be honest I messed it up, it was the night that Jessica and I started camping. This technique t requires tracking the Andromeda Galaxy for a couple of hours to get all the details. However due to the way the Astronomy mount works it needs to be reset once it was pointing north. I got distracted reading stories to Jessica and totally forgot about this! So I have a few photos before the Andromeda simply drifts off! It was only in the last few days that I managed to capture the remaining images and aligned them to the ones I took in April, so this is the most compositey image I have ever taken, I have invested a lot of time and money into this technique and to be honest I’m not 100% sure of the results.
