Centre of Andromeda 19.00 hours 31/12/05 - Orpington

This is my first attempt to image with the LX90 with crude polar alignment. I had to keep exposure time down because anything over 20 secs was resulting in trailing, and I did not have time to re-align with the clouds rolling in! I'll send some better once I've had some practise.
